Update: Dillon was fastest in opening practice for the Jeff Foxworthy's Grit Chips 300 Nationwide Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway on Friday. He turned a fast lap of 124.186 mph.
Recommendation: Dillon edged rookie Alex Bowman to lead first practice at BMS on Friday morning. The Richard Childress Racing prodigy has started the season with two Top-10's but no victories to this point. Dillon cracked the Top 5 at this half-mile oval last August and it appears he will be a visitor to the Top 5 again in Saturday's 300-mile event at Bristol.
