WELCOME, N.C. – Ty Dillon will make his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway in the No. 33 Realtree/Rheem Chevrolet SS for Circle Sport Racing.

Dillon, who is competing full time in the NASCAR Nationwide Series this season in the No. 3 Chevrolet Camaro, will have Nick Harrison as his crew chief for Sunday’s Oral-B USA 500.

“It’s going to be a pretty special moment when I make those first laps this weekend, one that I won’t forget,” said Dillon, the 22-year-old, Welcome, N.C. native. “I’ve been fortunate enough in my racing career to have great opportunities like this one. I’m looking forward to racing the No. 33 Realtree/Rheem Chevrolet under the lights on Labor Day weekend.”

Dillon is no stranger to the 1.5-mile speedway. He won the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at AMS in 2012 in the No. 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet Silverado. He also participated in the Cup Series test there on Aug. 5-6.

Dillon is currently third in the Nationwide Series driver point standings with 10 races remaining.
