Twenty years after the late Dale Earnhardt ended a career-long drought by winning the DAYTONA 500 in the famed No. 3 Chevrolet of owner Richard Childress, Dillon returned the No. 3 to Gatorade Victory Lane at Daytona International Speedway in the 2018 edition of the DAYTONA 500.
In this year’s “Great American Race,” Dillon will attempt to join Richard Petty, Cale Yarborough and Sterling Marlin as the only drivers to win back-to-back DAYTONA 500s.
