Austin and Ty Dillon Play 3-D Dodgeball

NASCAR racing brothers Austin and Ty Dillon, both coming off of top-five finishes in the NASCAR Nationwide Series event at Indianapolis, were in Atlanta on Tuesday, August 7th for two appearances to promote the upcoming Labor Day night racing weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Aug. 31-Sept. 2.

The two drivers are among the top rising stars in NASCAR. Austin is currently second in the NASCAR Nationwide Series points standings and is the defending NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion. AdvoCare, the Official Performance Elite Products of Atlanta Motor Speedway, is one of Dillon's primary sponsors.

Austin’s younger brother Ty, who is racing full-time in his rookie season in the truck series, is also second in points.

Both are the grandsons of legendary NASCAR team owner Richard Childress.

The brothers competed in a 3-D dodgeball game from 3:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and the first twenty-four kids present received paid admission to Sky Zone and had the opportunity to play 3-D dodgeball with both Austin and Ty. The Atlanta Motor Speedway pace car was also on-site,

(Sky Zone Atlanta is located at 560 Old Peachtree Road Suwanee, GA 30024. Sky Zone’s indoor trampoline park allows participants to play dodgeball in an environment comprised of trampolines on all sides, including the walls.)
