1December 17th, 2012 - The 2012 race season is now in our rear-view mirror, but it wasn’t possible without our amazing sponsors that made our journey a success.

For the last 6 years it has been the team’s tradition to kick off the race season at Volusia County Speedway in Barberville, FL. in the U.M.P. Modified series.  Austin in his 6th year and Ty his 5th year of modified racing, continue to put up impressive stats each and every year.  This year was no different with Ty earning the UNOH DIRTcar Nationals Points Championship, followed by older brother Austin who has claimed 2nd in the points championship the last 4 years.

However, most of you know that our true love at Team Dillon Racing is the 900 horsepower; 2300 lb ground pounding Super Late Models (SLM).  This year Team Dillon Racing (TDR) stepped up their schedule by adding Dale McDowell, one of the well known veterans in the SLM world, to their list of drivers.  Having 3 drivers in the TDR stables didn’t leave for much off time throughout the summer for the crew.  The TDR team entered a total of 70 SLM shows that covered 13 different states as far South as Florida & Alabama, as far West as Arkansas & Indiana and as far North as Ohio & Pennsylvania.  Austin & Ty’s NASCAR schedules keep them busy at the asphalt tracks, but they continue to look forward to jumping in their SLM at a dirt track on their off weekends.  Austin was able to pick up 2 top 5’s and 4 top 10’s this year and Ty had 1 top 5 and 6 top 10’s.  Dale McDowell’s schedule kept the TDR crew on their toes earning 8 wins, 22 top 5’s and 28 top 10’s.

This year’s season ended the weekend before Thanksgiving, in time for our team to spend a much needed weekend off with their families and give thanks for another great year in the books.  However, we wasted no time in getting back to business, on Monday the modifieds were already getting prepped for their annual trip to Florida to kick off the 2013 season.  As all of us at TDR look forward to the 2013 season, we also hope you're looking forward to joining us again for another great ride…

Happy Holidays to you and your families from all of us at Team Dillon Racing!
