Austin Dillon to run special Dow scheme at Michigan

For the third consecutive year, Austin Dillon is set to pilot a very special Dow Chevrolet.

In addition to a fresh paint scheme, more than 1,100 names of veterans will be featured on the #3 car this weekend during the FireKeepers Casino 400 (Sunday, 3 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) at Michigan International Speedway. The names are those of Dow employees, contractors, family members and Richard Childress Racing employees.

The names of RCR employees include the president, Torrey Galida, who served in the Navy, as well as Dillon's engine tuner, Frank Mathalia, who served in the Marines. The car was unveiled on Thursday night's edition of Race Hub on FS1.

"In a show of appreciation for the contributions of veterans serving in the United States Armed Forces, and the knowledge and attributes they add to the workforce, it means a lot to be able to honor their service and sacrifice through the No. 3 Dow Salutes Veterans Chevrolet," Dillon said.
