RCR’s Path Back To The Top

For Austin Dillon, the grandson of Richard Childress, the low point of his NASCAR Cup Series career with Richard Childress Racing came during his second and third seasons in the series. “They were pretty tough for me in the Cup Series,” Dillon told SPEED SPORT. “I really made a big push to get Chevrolet more involved, because at that time the Chevy teams were basically racing each other,” Petree said. After the duo won the 2019 Xfinity Series title, it came time for the call up in 2020, with Reddick taking over the No. Reddick said that during his title run it was “difficult to watch” the Cup Series teams struggle on Sundays. For Dillon, the key was advancing Reddick’s entire team to the Cup Series ranks. Dillon felt he and Reddick “were both pushing each other at different tracks” throughout Reddick’s rookie season.
