Austin Dillon shows hockey and NASCAR don’t mix well

Leave a comment

NASCAR’s Cup Series doesn’t race in the rain and Austin Dillon recently demonstrated race cars don’t do well on ice, either.

Dillon spent Friday in Michigan visiting Dow employees and participating in various events at the Dow Event Center in Saginaw ahead of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) game for the Saginaw Spirit.

Dow is one of the sponsors on Dillon’s No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet.

WSGW reported that Dow had rewarded its employees for 485 days of operating incident-free with no safety related issues by giving them the chance to meet Dillon and attend the hockey game. Dillon signed autographs in addition to getting to drop the ceremony first puck.

The two-time NASCAR champion also got to take a drive, well, slide around the ice.
