STATESVILLE, N.C. – Jordan Anderson Racing officials announced Wednesday that Ty Dillon will drive the team’s No. 31 South Point Chevrolet Camaro SS in the Alsco Uniforms 302 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sept. 25.
“I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity to get back behind the wheel in the NASCAR Xfinity Series,” said Dillon. “Jordan’s program has had strong runs this season and I look forward to continuing what his No. 31 team has been able to put together so far. It’s cool to honor Brendan Gaughan in his hometown and sport the South Point Hotel and Casino’s colors once again in my career. Back in 2012 when I made my first Xfinity Series start, South Point was the sponsor on my car and what Brendan and his family have done and continue to do for our sport is worth celebrating.”
Dillon has made nine NASCAR Xfinity Series starts this season between Joe Gibbs Racing and Our Motorsports, earning a best finish of fifth at Atlanta Motor Speedway earlier this year. This will be his first start for Jordan Anderson Racing.
“Ty is a very experienced driver who will be able to step into the seat and instantly put the team in a position to compete towards the front,” said Jordan Anderson Racing President Jordan Anderson. We first raced against each other in Legends cars over 10 years ago – so this is really cool to see this opportunity come full circle.”
In 155 NASCAR Xfinity Series starts Dillon has one victory, which came at Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the 2014 season. He’s also made 166 NASCAR Cup Series starts, earning two top-five and six top-10 finishes.
