No. 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet Silverado

Event Preview Fact Sheet

This Week’s Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet at Charlotte Motor Speedway … Ty Dillon will pilot chassis No. 022 from the Richard Childress Racing stable in Friday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. This RCR-prepared Chevrolet was utilized by the former No. 22 team last year which earned two pole awards, a victory at Pocono Raceway and four top-10 finishes.

Hometown Stats … This weekend’s 134-lap event marks Dillon’s second appearance at the 1.5-mile facility. Dillon earned his first-career Camping World Truck Series pole award at Charlotte Motor Speedway last year and went on to finish 10th. The 21-year-old driver made his racing debut at Charlotte Motor Speedway in a bandolero car in 2006.

Gobble, Gobble … The No. 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet will sport a different look this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway with the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) on board. Bass Pro Shops and the NWTF work together in wildlife habitat conservation in an effort to preserve North America’s wild turkey population. The NWTF was founded in 1973 in Edgefield, S.C., and has since expanded to having local chapters in every state and Canada. Today, the NWTF has helped preserve almost 17 million acres of habitat land.

NASCAR Day is May 17… Join Dillon in celebrating 10 years of NASCAR Day by picking up a limited edition collectable pin designed by NASCAR artist Sam Bass. Fans can purchase a NASCAR Day pin for a $10 donation to the NASCAR Foundation at a local Camping World SuperCenter or online at NASCAR.com/foundation. Donations from the pins will help children across the country live happier, healthier lives.

Meet the Driver … Dillon is scheduled to participate in an autograph session with older brother Austin Dillon, and grandfather Richard Childress, at the Bass Pro Shops located at 8181 Concord Mills Blvd in Concord, N.C. The trio will sign autographs for fans beginning at 6 p.m. Eastern Time on Monday, May 20.

TY DILLON QUOTE:

You’ve had three weeks off from the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. What do you expect this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway?

“I’m looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of the No. 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet this weekend at Charlotte (Motor Speedway). I raced two NASCAR Nationwide Series events with the No. 33 RCR team during the break, and that helped me stay sharp in the driver’s seat. This No. 3 team won the pole award here last year, so we have a lot of good notes and a great place to start for this year. I hope to bring home the pole award and the win this time around.”
