2017 is Ty Dillon’s 1st full-season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and he is gunning for the Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors in the No. 13 GEICO Chevrolet SS for Germain Racing. But Ty was a sportsman long before getting behind the wheel.
While racing is in their blood, it was his family’s passion for the outdoors that helped shape the man Ty would become. Ty spent his childhood riding bikes, fishing the local ponds, and just playing in the backyard. He first picked up a rifle at 8 years old when older brother, and fellow NASCAR Driver, Austin was preparing for his first hunt.
Ty is grounded by the deep roots of his family's racing heritage and their love for outdoor adventure. He is driven to be successful on the track and in the field. He shares his passion for adventure, like his mentors shared it with him, and he acts as a steward for our natural resources. That is why Ty Dillon is the Most Interesting Sportsman in the World - Spring 2017!
"My love of the outdoors is something I will pass on to my kids. Love for the natural world around you is easy to teach but rarely taught. I will show them the woods and let them find their passion." - Ty Dillon.
