In a span of eight days, Austin Dillon is going to be a very busy race car driver. Sunday, he races in the Nationwide Series' STP 300 at Chicagoland Speedway.
Wednesday, he climbs back into a race truck for the first time since he won the 2011 Camping World Truck Series championship to compete in the first-ever trucks race on dirt in the CarCash Mudsummer Classic Presented by CNBC Prime's The Profit at Eldora Speedway.
"I'm really excited," Dillon said. "I feel like we'll have a shot to win. Eldora is a place I grew up dirt racing on, set the pole for the World 100 once and feel like it's an unbelievable opportunity that NASCAR is giving us drivers to go and run on dirt. I'm looking forward to it and I think it's going to be a great race, and if all goes well, I think you'll see more of those come around. I'm just excited to be in the inaugural dirt race in the truck series."
Three days later, he'll race in the Indiana 25...
