TY DILLON QUOTE:
You've had some success at PIR in the past few races. What's your secret?
"I really enjoy short-track racing, it's what I grew up doing with Team Dillon Racing. I think PIR really fits my style and our team really has been able to figure out the best race strategy. It starts with qualifying well and not having any mistakes throughout the day. Because it is a short race, there is not a lot of room for error. I love the intensity of every lap at PIR, fighting for every inch of track position and the wild restarts."
