by Kaleb Frady
HAMPTON, Ga. -- NASCAR racing brothers Austin and Ty Dillon, both coming off of top-five finishes in the NASCAR Nationwide Series event at Indianapolis last weekend, will be in Atlanta on Tuesday, Aug. 7 for two appearances to promote the upcoming Labor Day night racing weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Aug. 31-Sept. 2.
The two drivers are among the top rising stars in NASCAR. Austin is currently second in the NASCAR Nationwide Series points standings and is the defending NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion. AdvoCare, the Official Performance Elite Products of Atlanta Motor Speedway, is one of Dillon's primary sponsors.
Austinís younger brother Ty, who races full-time in his rookie season in the truck series, is second in points.
Both are the grandsons of legendary NASCAR team owner Richard Childress.
The brothers will compete in a 3-D dodgeball game from 3:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and the first 24 kids present will receive paid admission to Sky Zone and have the opportunity to play 3-D dodgeball with both Austin and Ty.
Sky Zone Atlanta is located at 560 Old Peachtree Road Suwanee, GA 30024. Sky Zoneís indoor trampoline park allows participants to play dodgeball in an environment comprised of trampolines on all sides, including the walls.
Following the dodgeball competition, the drivers will hold an autograph session from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Aug. 7 at Bass Pro Shops in Lawrenceville, an event open to fans of all ages.
