Last night, NASCAR legend Richard Childress, 2012’s Rookie of the Year Austin Dillon and brother Ty Dillon hosted a meet and greet for fans at Optica in The Venetian Lobby to preview NASCAR’s return to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The TAG Heuer-sponsored Richard Childress Racing (RCR) team arrived at the luxury eyewear boutique just after 6 p.m. and posed for photos and signed autographs for dozens of NASCAR enthusiasts awaiting their arrival.
NASCAR owner and former partner to Dale Earnhardt, Richard Childress, accompanied his grandsons and protégés, Austin and Ty Dillon. The drivers all sported TAG gear and sunglasses for the occasion with Austin wearing the brand new TAG 252 LRS Aviator style. Visitors in town this weekend for NASCAR can pick up their own TAG Heuer frames at Optica stores around Las Vegas.
The brothers will both compete in the Nationwide Series today and Austin Dillon, who was 2012’s NASCAR Nationwide Rookie of the Year, is also competing in the Sprint Cup Series on Sunday. Austin is running a full-time Nationwide Series schedule and about six Cup races this year aiming to become a full-time Cup driver in 2014 at RCR.
Fans are invited to view the TAG Heuer Avant-Garde Eyewear – No. 51 Car that Austin Dillon currently drives that is on display at McCarran International Airport until Tuesday, March 12.
