When NASCAR’s top-three series heads to Darlington Raceway this weekend, Austin Dillon will be running double-duty between the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series, piloting the No. 31 Swann Security Chevrolet Camaro for Jordan Anderson Racing in the Sport Clips Haircuts VFW Help a Hero 200 on September 4.
“It’s always fun when I get to race in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, especially at a track as historic and difficult as Darlington Raceway, so I’m looking forward to putting some laps around the Lady In Black in the No. 31 Chevy,” said Dillon. “I really want to thank Jordan Anderson and everyone at Jordan Anderson Racing for this opportunity. They’ve worked so hard to establish a competitive team and I’m going to do my best to represent them and Swann Security this weekend with a competitive on-track performance.”
The Welcome, North Carolina-native will make his fifth NASCAR Xfinity Series start of the 2021 season with his fourth different organization, having contested events for Bassett Racing, JR Motorsports and Our Motorsports, scoring a season-high sixth-place finish at Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s Road Course.
In 10 NASCAR Cup Series starts at Darlington Raceway, Dillon holds an average finish of 12.4, including a best finish of second-place last season, a run which allowed him to launch himself into the spotlight in last year’s NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs.
“Austin is a driver with a lot of laps around Darlington. I’ve got confidence he’ll be able to earn us a great finish and represent our whole team and Swann Security well in front of my home state of South Carolina. With Austin’s experience, strong motors from ECR, and great cars from RCR – we’re all looking forward to Saturday’s race,” said JAR President Jordan Anderson. “After the mis-fortune at Daytona to open the season I could’ve never imaged to work with the drivers we’ve had compete for JAR this season. From Tyler Reddick, Josh Berry, Kaz Grala, Sage Karam, Erik Jones, and now Austin Dillon it has been a blessing to have so many great supporters believe in our vision of building this organization. It has been a true team effort of many great people to get where we are today in such a short amount of time.”
Swann Security will partner with Jordan Anderson Racing for the second-time this season, after adorning the No. 3 Chevrolet Silverado in the season-opener at Daytona International Speedway for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, in which Anderson finished in the runner-up position.
“All of us here at Swann are beyond excited to see Austin Dillon compete in the No. 31 Swann Security Chevrolet at Darlington on Labor Day Weekend,” said Leslie Conover, VP of Sales at Swann. “We are very fortunate to be able to support such an accomplished race team. We all are eagerly awaiting the race and will be rooting for a great finish.”
