This Week's Rheem Chevrolet at Las Vegas Motor Speedway
In four previous NASCAR XFINITY Series starts at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Dillon has earned one victory (2015), two top-five finishes, four top-10 finishes and one pole award. The RCR driver holds an average starting position of 5.5 coupled with an average finishing position of 4.8.
EcoNet Enabled with Rheem
Several new Rheem products are 'smart,' WiFi enabled to give contractors helpful diagnostic information and also serve consumers. Rheem has formed partnerships with NEST and Wink, compatible with Rheem's own EcoNET platform. Fans who visit Las Vegas Motor Speedway will have an opportunity to see these technologies first-hand by visiting Rheem's High Efficiency Air and Water Road Show Mobile Unit, which will be on display in the Las Vegas Motor Speedway fan midway area all weekend. Various drivers from the Rheem racing family are scheduled to make appearances to the display all weekend, including Dillon, on Sunday at 9:20 a.m. P.T.
Dillon, the 2013 XFINITY Series Champion and 2012 Rookie of the Year, returns to regular XFINITY Series competition this season. This season, he'll continue to share driving duties with fellow Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series teammate Paul Menard. In addition, Ben Kennedy will join the RCR lineup for nine races thanks to a commitment from Rheem, Menards and RCR to help continue the tradition of developing talent and growing the sport.
Is there anything you can take from Atlanta Motor Speedway to Las Vegas Motor Speedway? The two tracks look virtually the same from the air but I'm sure from your seat there are quite a few differences...
"In qualifying trim I think we'll be able to use some of the things that we used at Atlanta Motor Speedway just because for one lap you have the grip to go fast. The Rheem Chevrolet will definitely be more trimmed out for Las Vegas Motor Speedway because there's a little more grip out there but as the tracks have both aged they've gotten to the point that drive-ability means a lot."
