Petty GMS Race Preview: Talladega Superspeedway II


Dillon at Talladega Superspeedway: Ty Dillon has nine Talladega races under his belt in the Cup Series and has earned two top-10 finishes at the venue. In 2020, Dillon earned his career-best NASCAR Cup Series result in the fall race at ‘Dega, finishing third. He also led 10 laps here and raced in the lead at the spring race earlier this year before being involved in a mid-race crash.

Dillon made six NASCAR Xfinity Series starts at the super speedway, posting a Top 10 result in 2015, where he finished eighth. In two starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Dillon took pole in 2012 and finished fourth in that race as well. In 2011, Dillon made his one and only ARCA Menards Series start on the track, winning the race in dominant fashion from pole.

From the driver’s seat: Dillon’s thoughts on racing at Talladega Superspeedway:

“I’m pretty fired up to head back to Talladega this weekend with our Sunseeker Resorts Camaro. In every super speedway race we’ve run this season, our Petty GMS team has brought some really fast cars, and it shows with our two teams. We were able to connect with our teammate and take the lead in the spring, and also had a good run for us at Daytona until we were caught in the big one. This time around, I’m hoping we can put together another solid effort and hang on for the 500 miles so we have a chance at the end.”
