This Week’s Rheem/WATTS Chevrolet at New Hampshire Motor Speedway
Ty Dillon returns to New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend to pilot the No. 3 Rheem/WATTS Chevrolet in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. This will be his fourth series start at the one-mile track. He earned his best finish of sixth in 2015, the same year of his best starting position of seventh. He also has three starts at the track in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. Dillon will make his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series start at New Hampshire this weekend.

Setting the standard

Today, Watts is part of the Watts Water Technologies family with operations in North America, Europe and Asia. Watts designs, manufactures and sells an extensive line of flow control products for the water quality, residential plumbing & heating, commercial and OEM markets.
Why is New Hampshire Motor Speedway such a challenging track?
“We go to other racetracks that are flat like New Hampshire, but they are not nearly as fast. It feels like you’re in the corners for such a long time because of the lack of banking. It’s a unique challenge, almost like Martinsville Speedway on steroids. It’s really fun, but a tough, tough place to pass. History shows that there’s been a lot of late-race restarts that call for aggressive moves and action to get yourself in a good position.”
