Ty Dillon is hardly a stranger to the 1.5 Mile Speedway. He has won plenty of races during his day as a NASCAR driver at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Two years ago he was able to win the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Race at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. He has also participated in the Cup Series Tests that are located at the ATS. He will be a serious competitor that veterans of NASCAR shouldn’t take lightly, he has more strength in his arms which means he can make quick turns or manoeuvres faster than his fellow veteran drivers.

“It’s going to be a pretty special moment when I make those first laps this weekend, one that I won’t forget,” said Dillon, the 22-year-old, Welcome, N.C., native. “I’ve been fortunate enough in my racing career to have great opportunities like this one. I’m looking forward to racing the No. 33 Realtree/Rheem Chevrolet under the lights on Labor Day weekend.”
Ty Dillion currently sits at third place for the Nationwide NASCAR Series.

Nascar recently went looking for a new title sponsor late in 2013 as Nationwide Insurance decided at random that they wanted to pull out as the title sponsor for second tier Nascar. Instead Nationwide Insurance became the title sponsor for the first tier Nascar events. This has allowed for Comcast to take on the role as the second tier Nascar Title Sponsor.
The 2014-2015 Season of Nascar will begin in the weeks after September. You can look forward to new changes in Second Tier Nascar due to this new title sponsorship deal.

“The deal, which is valued at close to $200M, is expected to be announced on Wednesday in Charlotte,” the report said. “The announcement follows several months of negotiations and represents a major achievement for NASCAR.”

“Comcast emerged as a viable replacement after the company’s sports TV group, NBC, signed a 10-year, $4.4B rights deal with NASCAR,” the SBD report said. “As part of the deal, Comcast agreed to spend $10M marketing and promoting the sport.”
