‘Our win is definitely coming,’ Austin Dillon is confident about securing his first win of 2022 soon following his runners up finish in Talladega
Austin Dillon has had a consistent set of results in his 2022 season so far as he finished Top 10 five times after 10 rounds of racing. The No:3 Richard Childress Racing Driver secured his second runner-up in the finish of 2022 at Talladega last Sunday with the first one coming at Fontana. But Austin Dillon had struggled with results if he isn’t able to finish Top 10 as 4 of its 5 finishes outside the Top 10 were outside the Top 20.
If not for his luck the RCR driver would have secured a win already but that is so far not the case and he hit the Talladega Cup racing hoping to secure a spot in victory lane. Austin Dillon had an average start as he gradually found his way up to the top from his P14 grid position and in the final lap, he was able to get from P8 to P2 taking advantage of front runners crashing out and clearing the way.
Now Austin Dillon has come forth suggesting he would soon be able to get a win in Cup Race this season.
