After earning the pole, the driver of the No. 3 Chevrolet would follow with a good performance in the Auto Club 400. Dillon would bounce up and down the Top 15 all afternoon, but keep close touch with the leaders. He was battling flu-like symptoms, so the effort was really incredible. Dillon restarted stage 3 just inside the Top 10 and he would remain there over the long green-flag haul to the finish. It was his first Top 10 of the season.
