Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series

Austin Dillon has speed, now needs to overcome "mistakes"

All of Richard Childress Racing’s teams have shown raw speed this NASCAR season, but Dillion particular has been very fast.

Unfortunately, through the first four races of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup season, Dillon has been unable to translate that speed into a solid finish.

Although the final round of knockout qualifying produced some bizarre team shenanigans, Dillon was fastest through the first two rounds and was awarded the pole for Sunday’s Auto Club 400.

The pole is the fourth of Dillon’s Cup career and second at Auto Club Speedway.

The team didn’t get a full tank of gas in his car on the final pit stop and Dillon was forced to pit for fuel under green before the finish.

“We were going to finish fifth and I was saving fuel and we had a shot to run third, we had the lap times to do it.
