The Driver’s Wheel…thoughts from Ty Dillon

…on how he feels about the repave at Kentucky Speedway:

“I like Kentucky Speedway after its repave. I was very successful at the old-style Kentucky. But, I did come back and lead a lot of laps there in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. I think the repave is going to be great the more years we get on the track. We’re working on some new packages at Germain Racing for Kentucky Speedway. We weren’t really happy with the way we ran at Michigan, but there’s definitely no quit in this GEICO Chevrolet crew. Hopefully we unload with some speed there and have a good weekend."

…on how he feels about "tire-dragging" to season the track surface:

"I do think the tire dragging makes the racing surface a little bit more competitive. The one, main line is so dominant. If you get out of it, it’s pretty dusty. If they can lay down rubber from the middle of the groove up to the wall, I think you’ll see a great race.”
