Next year’s plans for Ty Dillon have yet to be announced.

This much is known, however: Dillon, a full-time XFINITY Series driver, will campaign a No. 33 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet in this year’s Sprint Cup Series season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Dillon, who is nearing the end of his second year in NASCAR’s No. 2 division, will drive a Cup car at Homestead for his grandfather’s organization with primary sponsorship from Nexium 24HR.

The 23-year-old native of Lewisville, N.C., has six previous Sprint Cup starts, including four this season. Dillon is expected to return to the XFINITY Series next year in the No. 3 car for RCR, or move to Sprint Cup fulltime with RCR or another team.

With three races left in the 2015 XFINITY Series season, Dillon is fourth in the standings and 36 points out of the championship lead.
