Austin Dillon wins Xfinity Series race at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Austin Dillon once stood in victory lane at Daytona International Speedway celebrating a Dale Earnhardt win with his grandfather and wondering if he would ever make it back to commemorate his own achievement.

Richard Childress assured his grandson, "You'll have the opportunity one day, and you'll make it."

Dillon proved his grandfather correct Saturday night by winning the Xfinity Series race at Daytona for Richard Childress Racing.
