MYCOGEN SEEDS, AUSTIN DILLON UNVEIL NO. 3 CAR FOR BRICKYARD 400
Source: Mycogen Seeds news release

Brian Barker, Mycogen Seeds general manager, and RCR driver Austin Dillon unveil the new paint scheme for the No. 3 Mycogen Seeds Chevrolet SS Dillon will drive at the 2014 Brickyard 400.
Mycogen Seeds and Richard Childress Racing (RCR) announce a continuation of their partnership at the Brickyard 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. On Wednesday, RCR driver Austin Dillon met with employees of Mycogen Seeds and Dow AgroSciences, to unveil the new paint scheme for the No. 3 Mycogen Seeds Chevrolet SS that he will drive at the 2014 Brickyard 400. The race takes place July 27 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

"As one of America's fastest-growing seed companies, Mycogen Seeds is excited to sponsor one of the fastest drivers in racing," says Brian Barker, Mycogen Seeds general manager. "The partnership with RCR is a great opportunity for us to bring customers to the Brickyard 400 to not only cheer on Austin Dillon but also to spend time with our leadership so they can better understand how Mycogen Seeds can help meet their farming challenges."

This year is significant for both Dillon and the Brickyard 400. First, Dillon is the defending NASCAR Nationwide Series champion. Second, Mycogen Seeds and RCR are making possible the return of the No. 3 car that Dale Earnhardt Sr. made famous more than a decade ago.

The car rose to fame after Earnhardt used it to win six of his seven championships. It has not appeared in a Sprint Cup race since Earnhardt's death in 2001 at the Daytona 500. In last year's Brickyard 400, Dillon drove the No. 33 Mycogen Seeds Chevrolet for the RCR team.

"I am extremely proud to take the wheel of No. 3, thanks to the sponsorship of Mycogen Seeds," Dillon says. "I'll work hard to give Mycogen Seeds a great finish and honor the legacy of No. 3."

"Mycogen Seeds and Dow AgroSciences are honored to be a part of bringing back this legendary car to the Sprint Cup Series and support Austin, one of NASCAR's most 'up-and-coming drivers'," Barker says.

Since its inaugural race in 1994, the Brickyard 400 has been the most-attended and second-highest-paying event in NASCAR. The race is in Indianapolis, home of Mycogen Seeds headquarters.

The 2014 Brickyard 400 is set for Sunday, July 27, at 1 p.m. ET at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The race is scheduled to air live on ESPN.
