- Outside of the car, he enjoys hunting, paintball, physical training and fantasy sports.
- He played in the 2002 Little League World Series as a second baseman.
- He’s married to a former NFL cheerleader named Whitney.
- His family is known for working in racing – we all know grandfather Richard Childress and brother Ty Dillon, but father Mike is the vice president of business development at RCR.
