Dillon Bassett, No. 44 Toyota Camry, Dominion Raceway Preview

No. 44 Toyota Camry… Crew Chief Nathan Kennedy and the No. 44 team will unload chassis 058 for Monday’s ComServe Wireless Memorial Day Classic at Dominion Raceway. This car last raced at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in 2014 with Brandon Gdovic behind the wheel.

Unlikely Partnership… Precision Performance Motorsports (PPM) partners with Bassett Racing for this weekend’s NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) race. In a combined effort to support Dillon Bassett in his successful 2016 season, PPM will provide the chassis, parts and equipment needed for Bassett. Bassett’s crew will field the No. 44 entry and have spent the week leading up to the race preparing the car at PPM’s race shop. “The NASCAR garage is a special place in times of tragedy,” said Charles Denike, PPM General Manager. “PPM was able to provide a car for Dillon and the equipment he needed to help make the race happen. It’s amazing the resiliency of Dillon and Ronnie Jr along with their family, crew chiefs, and crew. This will be a special race for everyone involved.”

Dillon Bassett Quotes:
” I am really looking forward to to this weekend because after Friday night, the thought of me racing was gone. To get the opportunity to drive one of the Precision Performance Motorsports cars means so much since we lost pretty much everything we had in the fire. For Rick Gdovic to step up and give me this opportunity means a lot.”
