When the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chevrolet Silverado 250 starts on Sunday afternoon at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, championship contender Ty Dillon will have more experience on the track than rest of the top five drivers combined.

That is because when Dillon found out last November the 3.957-km CTMP road course was going to be on the 2013 Truck schedule, he immediately texted his buddy J.R. Fitzpatrick, of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series, to see if he could drive the No. 4 Fitzpatrick Motorsports Chevrolet for the Victoria Day Speedfest Vortex Brake Pads 200 at the former Mosport Grand Prix course.

All the 21-year-old from Charlotte, N.C., did was get a top-10 finish and earn valuable seat time on the track.

Dillon is currently fourth in the NCWTS championship battle, 58 points back of leader Matt Crafton with nine races left on the 2013 calendar.

He has already recorded a win, four top-fives and seven top-10 finishes this season.
