Richard Childress Racing has announced that Ty Dillon will move from the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series to the NASCAR Nationwide Series for the 2014 season. Dillon will run fulltime in the #3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet that his brother Austin currently drives. Yuengling Light Lager will be the primary sponsor on the #3 for eight races in the 2014 season. 

“The Yuengling Brewery is extremely proud to be partnered with a world-class organization like RCR for the 2014 Nationwide Season,” said Lou Romano Director of Marketing and Wholesaler Development for Yuengling. “Both organizations are true American success stories exemplifying hard work, family values and proven results. Ty Dillon is a perfect match for us to help introduce our Light Lager brand to loyal NASCAR fans wherever Yuengling is sold. He’s not only a strong competitor on the track, but shares many of the same interests as Yuengling drinkers. Ty is an avid sports fan, outdoor enthusiast and holds close family ties. We also know and understand the legacy of the No. 3 to RCR and in NASCAR history, and are honored to have our brewery appear with that number on Ty’s car in 2014.”

Ty Dillon is currently competing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and currently sits fourth in the standings and is 62 points behind leader Matt Crafton. Dillon has two wins in the Camping World Truck Series. 

It leaves little doubt now that Austin Dillon will now move to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and run for the Rookie of the Year title in the 2014 season.
