Austin Dillon has been willing to endure a little pain since winning the Daytona 500 last weekend. First came the tattoo he got on his rear end to commemorate the victory and, as the celebration continues for Richard Childress Racing the next pain will be to his wallet. Dillon has committed to paying for every employee to receive Daytona 500 winner’s rings.
“It’s going to hurt a little bit, but it’s worth it,” said Dillon about the chunk of change he’ll be dishing out. “I’m a believer in you give, you get back – and I’ve been given a lot, and the blessing just keeps returning itself. So, it’s a big morale booster for all those guys [to get rings].”
For the record, there are 425 RCR employees.
“Jostens, if you’re listening, we need to do some kind of social media deal or something. Get a good deal on those rings,” Dillon joked.
Dillon’s victory last weekend was the second of his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series career and the third Daytona 500 triumph for Richard Childress Racing.
