About Dillon Oliver

 

Dillon Oliver, a young talent from Bowling Green, Kentucky has had success in every stage of his growing career.  The 20 year old has won races, track championships, and national championships along his progression to the professional ranks of racing.  Starting in go carts, and progressing to mini cup, legends cars, late models, and now the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Dillon has impressed the racing community at every level.  To this point all of his successes have come from a family funded operation with a modest budget, along with help from a few smaller yet dedicated marketing partners.  His work ethic and devotion to continuous learning have developed Dillon into a well rounded driver, as well as a knowledgeable and eager individual when it comes to preparation and adjusting the race vehicles. Dillon is one of the rare drivers that have the technical knowledge, the unrelenting desire, and the god given talent to be considered the complete package.  He has the maturity and personality that make marketing an enjoyable and mutually rewarding experience.

“I have been blessed with the opportunities that have been presented to me, and truly feel that with the right marketing partnership, myself and everyone that has helped me along the way can really show what we have been working so hard for all of these years” Dillon stated. With 183 starts in various series and types of cars Dillon has amassed a staggering 163 top 10 finishes, 118 top 5 finishes, 78 feature wins, 22 poles, and 7 championships (3 of which were on a national level). The 2009 season brought Oliver’s talents to a national stage where he won 3 straight late model races, including ASA Late Model victories at the Iowa Speedway, and the Memphis Motorsports Park where he was given the year long title as “King of the Short Tracks”.  Dillon looks to continue his growth while competing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
