Dillon on American Ethanol road trip to Eldora

July 22, 2013, Staff report,

Austin Dillon is road-tripping from Chicagoland to Eldora | See his Eldora ride here

After finishing third and taking his second consecutive Dash 4 Cash prize in the STP 300 at Chicagoland Speedway on Sunday, Austin Dillon embarked on an easterly journey on his way to his next race destination, Eldora Speedway.

Just 250 miles separate Chicagoland, located in Joliet, Ill., and Eldora, located in Rossburg, Ohio, but Dillon and his Richard Childress Racing crew stopped by a POET plant in Portland, Ind. to give some respect to one of his sponsors, American Ethanol.
