AUSTIN DILLON QUOTE:
How do you like old school racing at Darlington Raceway?
“I enjoy Darlington Raceway. They call it the Lady in Black and it’s a cool track because it’s a place where you have to be really patient. You’re running right up against the wall and there is a lot of speed there. I enjoy racing there and I can’t wait to get there.”
If you don’t get a stripe at Darlington Raceway do you feel like you haven’t really been there?
“No, actually I’ve ran two or three races there now and I don’t even think I’ve gotten one, and I’ve ran in the top five in all three races. A Darlington stripe is coming surely, I will have one before long. When you get out there by that wall, you are carrying so much speed it’s inevitable.”
