In 2003, at the age of 12, Cade Dillard began his racing career. At that time, the Robeline, LA native, was the youngest driver in the area racing modified stock cars. After his first year behind the wheel of a modified, Cade scored the track championship at his home track, Sabine Motor Speedway. Over the years his passion for racing has grown stronger and stronger. Since the beginning of his racing career just over a decade ago, Cade has raced at over 60 tracks across the U.S. and scored over 100 career wins.
On March 9th of this year, Cade Dillard Racing headed west to the dirt track at Texas Motor Speedway. Competing against 95 of the best modifieds in the country, Dillard and his crew knew they would need to have a perfect weekend of racing in order to come out on top. He led wire-to-wire and scored the biggest win of his career becoming the 2014 World Dirt Track Champion. He was also crowned as the 2014 USMTS Rookie of the Year in September 2014.
Cade recently teamed up with Chris Brown of Cleveland, TX to pilot the house car for LG21 racecars. Such opportunities like this don’t come around often. He considers this a huge privilege to have this chance to showcase his talent. Dillard has a resume that most 25 year veterans would be proud to have. For someone so young, with his drive and talent, he is not afraid to take his show on the road and go up against the best racers. If his past is any indication of his future, it is safe to say the name Cade Dillard will be very popular in the world of dirt track racing for many years to come.
Cade would like to congratulate Debbie Nichols and Nichols stores on their 100th Anniversary. Winning 100 career races is more than anyone could imagine but to celebrate 100 years in business is a major accomplishment! It is a milestone that Debbie and her crew should be proud to celebrate. Dillard is very grateful to have the opportunity to advertise Nichols on the side of his #97 machine! It takes great supporters like Nichols to keep racing teams like Dillard’s on the road. Cade Dillard Racing would also like to thank his other local sponsors, Fox’s Pizza Den, Scotty Carnline Electric, NAPA Auto Parts, as well as his parents, Greg and Pam Dillard, The Gunters and Tyler Roark.
