This Week's Rheem Chevrolet at Kentucky Speedway
This weekend, the NASCAR XFINITY Series makes its first of two trips to Kentucky Speedway in 2017. Ty Dillon has six previous NXS starts at the mile-and-a-half track. He secured the pole in 2014 and has scored four top-10 finishes, with his highest finish of second place coming in 2015. He has led laps in five of those six NXS races, totaling 270 laps led. Dillon has also found success in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in Kentucky. In his four series starts there, he scored one win in 2013 and has three top-five finishes.

After the repave, how do you like how the track has come in?

"We were very successful on the old surface at Kentucky, but we did come back in the XFINITY Series last year, and I was able to lead laps and still find a good rhythm around the track. Last September I was running really well until Erik Jones and I got into each other on the last restart and it really hurt our Chase. Even with that though, I really liked the repave. The more years that we get on the new surface, the better it will be."

What are your thoughts on the tire dragging that NASCAR has been doing on the recently repaved tracks?

"I think it makes the race more competitive when you go to these places with new pavement. There's always one main line that's dominant, and if you get out of line it's kind of dusty because rubber has never been laid down there. If they can lay it down from the middle of the track to as close to the wall as they can in Kentucky, I think the fans will see a great race."
