LEXINGTON, N.C. – Ty Dillon will return to the NASCAR Cup Series in select events, starting March 31 at Richmond (Va.) Raceway during the Toyota Owners 400.

Dillon, the grandson of NASCAR Hall of Famer Richard Childress, has been tabbed to pilot Kaulig Racing’s No. 16 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in five races this season.

Beyond the Easter Sunday race at Richmond, Dillon will return to the seat of the No. 16 Chevrolet April 14 at Texas Motor Speedway, June 23 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Aug. 11 at Richmond, and Sept. 29 at Kansas Speedway.

“I’m excited to be back in the NASCAR Cup Series with Kaulig Racing,” said Dillon. “This is the highest level of our sport and allows me to go out and prove what I can do with great leaders in Matt Kaulig, Chris Rice, Travis Mack, and the entire team.

“Kaulig Racing gives me the best opportunity to showcase what I can do on the track.”

A veteran of 238 career Cup Series starts, Dillon competed full time at NASCAR’s top level from 2017 to 2020, and again in both 2022 and 2023.

He has two top-five and seven top-10 finishes, with a career-best mark of third at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway in October of 2020 with the now-defunct Germain Racing operation.

Dillon will also continue his quest for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series championship this year with Rackley W.A.R. in addition to his limited Cup Series schedule.

“We’re excited to have Ty Dillon compete for Kaulig Racing this season in the NASCAR Cup Series,” said Kaulig Racing President Chris Rice. “With our continued success in the sport and support from Richard Childress Racing, it made perfect sense to lean on a veteran driver to help pilot the No. 16 Chevrolet.”

Broadcast coverage of the Toyota Owners 400 airs Sunday, March 31 at 7 p.m. ET, live on FOX, the Motor Racing Network, and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, channel 90.
