Once again the cat is out of the bag!

Richard Childress Racing has released a press release regarding the future plans of his younger grandson, Ty Dillon.

Richard Childress Racing has partnered with D.G Yuengling & Son to be a primary sponsor on the RCR #3 Yuengling Light Lager Chevrolet with driver Ty Dillon during the 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series season. As part of their 185th anniversary of brewing great lager, America’s oldest operating brewery will be the primary sponsor on the RCR Chevrolet Camaro for eight races of the 2014 schedule.

Yuengling Light Lager will be a key partner as Dillon moves full time to the Nationwide Series next season. Dillon is currently competing for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship, and has one victory to his credit this season (RCR).

From this press release one could definitely assume that Ty is replacing his older brother, Austin Dillon, in the #3 NNS Chevy. This announcement further strengthens the rumors that Austin Dillon will, supposedly, move up to the Sprint Cup Series in 2014, driving a car for Richard Childress Racing. Rumors have Childress bringing back the black #3, with Austin Dillon behind the wheel.  That would mean that Austin would either be replacing Kevin Harvick in the #29, and changing to the #3, or as a fourth Cup team in 2014.

The smart money would be that the #29 would be rebadging themselves as the black #3 Chevy!
