With Lightning’s Alex Killorn NASCAR’s Austin Dillon trades endowments

The 2018 Daytona 500 victor goes to his first Lightning game and is prepared for the “cool experience.”

Dillon, the 2018 Daytona 500 hero, was messaging companion Robby Scott a couple of days back when Scott advised Dillon to state hello to his pal Alex for him.

Scott and Dillon played Little League together in North Carolina and made it to the Little League World Series in 2002. They remained nearby companions through center school. At that point Scott went to secondary school with Killorn at Deerfield (Mass.) Academy.

The trio had never run into each other all things considered as of not long ago.

Killorn gave Dillon a blue home Lightning pullover before the game against the Penguins at Amalie Arena, and in return, he got a modified dashing head protector from Dillon, who drives in NASCAR’s Cup arrangement.

Dillon hasn’t been quite a bit of a hockey fan. He has dropped the puck at a Blue Jackets game yet never gave a lot of consideration to the game outside of various stuff. In the interim, Scott has been asking Dillon to go to a Hurricanes game.

Presently, Dillon stated, there’s a decent possibility he could “start tuning in more.”

“Now I have somebody to follow,” Dillon said. “It’s kind of like racing. I feel like when people come to the racetrack and meet someone for the first time at races, they start following it. And the same as other sports. You just want to follow it more because you have something to invest in.”

Dillon said the Blue Jackets experience was slick yet he thinks the vibe in Tampa Bay is all the more energizing. He was prepared for a cool encounter, as well — actually, since he wore a T-shirt to the game reasoning Florida climate rather than a hockey arena.

Other than that, he had one other desire:

“Well, Alex’s (nickname) is the ‘Killer,’ so I hope he kills the puck into the net,” Dillon said. “I’m pumped to watch the game and see how everything goes.”
