Dillon and Truex add additional races to their 2015 schedules

Ty Dillon and Ryan Truex have added additional races to their respective 2015 NASCAR schedules.

Richard Childress Racing on Thursday announced Dillon, who is competing fulltime in the Xfinity Series this season, will drive the No. 33 Chevrolet for Circle Sport Racing in the Nov. 22 Sprint Cup Series finale at Homestead, Fla.

Nexium, 24HR, manufactured by the biopharmaceutical company Pfizer Inc., will serve as the primary sponsor for Dillon’s entry in the race.

Also Thursday, Biagi DenBeste Racing announced it had added an additional race to driver Ryan Truex’s Xfinity schedule with the team.

Truex will now drive the No. 98 Ford in the Xfinity race next month at Texas Motor Speedway. Truex has competed three times this season with the team – at Richmond, Va., Charlotte and Kentucky.

“I know the feel that we need in our Mustang to get a Top-10 run to close out the year,” Truex said. “I really appreciate everyone at Biagi DenBeste Racing for giving me another chance to run this year."

Fred Biagi, team co-owner, said he has been impressed with Truex’s performance this season.

“He performed well in each of his starts, and he showed us that he is a contender,” Biagi said of Truex. “We're confident in his ability behind the wheel and are excited to give him another opportunity to race this year.”
