A Nobody's Resume

Achievements 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion
2013 NASCAR Nationwide SeriesChampion
2014 Daytona 500 pole winner
2017 Coca-Cola 600 Winner
2018 Daytona 500 Winner
Awards 2008 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Rookie of the Year
2010 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Rookie of the Year
2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Most Popular Driver
2012 NASCAR Nationwide SeriesRookie of the Year


There are plenty of racers that would be completely satisfied with this on thier resume by the age of 27.


The Dillon boys had an advantage from day 1. Their Dad Mike was 1 of the better chassis builders of his time so not a bad way to start out as a rookie in great stuff.

Next on to Grand Dads endless supply of $$$ & superior equipment for these kids to help prove themselves. Not saying that they have some talent, but if not for the silver spoon that was at their table along with their name they maybe just another wannabe at the local level who never was offered the chance, not given it!!!

Then you have NASCAR who would bow to anyone involved with the #3 who made the series extreme amounts of dollars with his antics of dirty driving of which NASCAR turned a blind eye to because it sold tickets & created drama. It takes so little talent to drive through somebody than it does to try to drive around them or try to race them for a coveted prize than it does to say I turned him & know he is mad but I won the Daytona 500. 

Feel free to bash me but it is just the truth be told that #3 will always be the redneck version of real racing in my opinion.

The Dillon boys were pretty fair dirt racers in late models to say the least.  Austin qualified for the Eldora Dream feature, one of 100+ cars trying to qualify, in I believe in 2013.  Year might be off by one.  Think it was 2013 though.  And he had only a small amount of late model racing on dirt, especially with the big name racers and doubt if he made it to any Outlaw late model races.  Plate racing is all about being in one of the top 15 or 16 cars and LUCK.    Luck is probably # 1 important thing in plate races.  Dillon is spelled Dillon, not Dillion. Had to google it to find out.  


Europe died during Hitler's deathcamps. If not 
for WWII, Jewish people in Europe would number 30 
million-all making important contributions. Instead 
Europe has 30 million people of another persuasion 
trying to destroy Europe.
