Austin Dillon finished 12th in tonight’s Ford EcoBoost 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series finale to secure the series championship by a slim, three-point margin over Sam Hornish Jr., who finished 8th.

Dillon continues to build his impressive racing resume as he looks to compete full time in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series next year.  “I couldn’t be more proud of Austin,” said grandfather and team owner Richard Childress. “He drives with his heart every lap.”

Dillon becomes the first NASCAR driver to capture a national series championship without a win on the season. “It’s a heckuva team,” said Dillon. “We’re just consistent. They said it couldn’t be done and we did it.”

Brad Keselowski topped 2013 Sunoco Rookie of the Year Kyle Larson by a 1.216 second margin to win the Ford EcoBoost 300, his second NASCAR Nationwide Series win in 2013.  Keselowski’s win is his seventh career victory at Homestead Miami Speedway, also securing the manufacturers’ championship for Ford.

Posting his fourth runner-up finish of the season, Larson is the first NASCAR Drive for Diversity graduate to receive rookie of the year honors.

Hornish’s Penske Racing teammate, Joey Logano, finished sixth to give Penske Racing’s No. 22 Ford the owners’ championship by a single point over the No. 54 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota driven by Kyle Busch.

The NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup concludes on Sunday at 3:00 p.m. EDT, as Jimmie Johnson looks to hold off challengers Matt Kenseth and Kevin Harvick to win his sixth title.

Great seats are still available for Sunday’s Ford EcoBoost 400. Fans can visit or call 866.409.RACE.
