It's great having Jim Dillon return to quarter-mile drag racing action following shoulder surgery and rehab that precluded him from participating in Pro for the lion's share of this season. His return to racing came at the Les Schwab Best of Detroit event in the Chevy Cup division. The Dillon family has long been a part of the motorsport's arena in not only the greater Treasure Valley for several decades, but throughout the west, too. The Dillon family has competed with a variety of "bodied" oval track cars almost back to the earliest of years. Jim was in the first induction class for the WIRA Hall of Fame (which occurred back in 1984). As we reach the tail end of this season, we wish Jim best of luck in his racing pursuits at Firebird.
