During his 48 years of racing, Dillman has earned many titles, including the Moroso Five Day over-all points Champion and Five Day Event Winner, Mid-Michigan Big Money Champion, Bowling Green Ten-Tuck Winner, Track Champion at IRP, as well as several NHRA titles, including SuperComp Divisional Winner at IRP, Jegs Sports Nationals Super Street Runner-up at Columbus, and Super-Pro Finals Runner up at IRP.
Dillman says his relationship with K&N started in 2006. "After installing a K&N air filter, my car actually ran one and a half miles per hour faster. I feel that the performance of K&N air and oil filters is superior and the individuals at K&N are always professional and very supportive."
Dillman Motorsports was even instrumental in helping K&N become the official oil filter of Steve Schmidt Competition Engines. "I retired from the Indianapolis Fire Department after a 38 year career. I now work part-time in outside sales and as tech advisor for Steve Schmidt Competition Engines. Given my sponsorship by K&N and my position with Schmidt, it made sense for me to connect two companies that I believe rank at the top of the list in motorsports. Schmidt is the only builder who guarantees his race engines for one year. It is important that his engines are outfitted with the best possible filters to accommodate his guarantee. Who better to do that than K&N?" says Dillman.
With so much already accomplished in the racing industry, Dillman shows no signs of stopping and continues to come up with innovative ideas. "I am putting together a deal with Steve Schmidt to build a new engine for the 2010 season. I hope to debut it in Atlanta in April, 2010," says Dillman. For now, he will continue racing his 1967 Chevy II in Super Street and Super Pro, doing just what he loves best. "The people I have met in drag racing, the relationships I have cultivated with my sponsors, my wonderful friends from Racers for Christ, as well as my family, sustain me."
