Enjoy Continuous Hot Water with Rheem
Rheem tankless water heaters provide the comfort and convenience of having a continuous supply of hot water. Gas models are great as a hot water solution for homes with busy families, homes with luxury bathrooms and vacation homes, while electric tankless models are a great hot water solution for a single faucet or shower.
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.
Dillon is scheduled to participate in a Q&A session on the Team Chevy stage in the Atlanta Motor Speedway fan midway area on Sunday at 11:10 a.m. EST.
Is there a particular difficult part to Atlanta Motor Speedway that you really had to learn, such as a turn, or anything about pit road, or perhaps just adjusting to the speed there?
"I think one of the key things about Atlanta Motor Speedway is the white line. Just keeping that car as close to that white line as you can all the way around the track. There seems to be a little bit of a grip, or more banking, right at the bottom, so that was always really tough for me."
What are your thoughts on Atlanta Motor Speedway getting repaved?
"Atlanta Motor Speedway is one of those places that I've grown to really like. It's a fun track. You really have to be disciplined because tire wear is an issue. When we get this new pavement it's going to be fast. I'm looking forward to this opportunity as always. It will be a new track. It will be turning over some of this knowledge that these guys that have a lot of laps on this track have. It will be taking that all away and starting over fresh."
