Spraker Racing Enterprises Inc. announced that NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Austin Dillon will drive the team’s No. 37 Chevrolet in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, Bully Hill Vineyards 125 at Watkins Glen International on August 8th.

Dillon, a regular in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series where he pilots the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet SS will make his first K&N start since Iowa Speedway in 2009. The 24-year-old hopes to gain some extra road course experience with the Spraker Racing team before competing in the Sprint Cup Series race at Watkins Glen, just two days later.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Austin,” said Jeff Spraker, president of Spraker Racing. “We have seen Austin develop into one of NASCAR’s best drivers in any series he has competed in through the years. We’re excited at the opportunity to contend for the win.”

Dillon, a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series rookie is the most recent winner in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. This past Saturday, he won the Pocono Mountains 150 at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway in his fifth start of the season, after starting second.

The Bully Hill Vineyards 125 at The Glen will be on Aug. 8 in Watkins Glen, N.Y. The green flag is scheduled for 6:15 p.m.
