2020 highlights

With drivers Blake Reynolds and Michael Guest, Team Dillon entered the 2020 season with high hopes. After all, Reynolds made the Championship 4 the previous year and Guest was poised to break out in a big way. It didn’t go quite as planned, however; Reynolds wasn’t able to back up his 2019 success, while Guest faced relegation after finishing in the bottom half of the standings.

Corey Vincent, meanwhile, put together a solid season driving for Renegades, falling just short of making the playoffs. Taylor Hurst spent a year out of the Coca-Cola iRacing Series, rebuilding from a less-than-ideal 2019.

2021 outlook

With a rebooted driver lineup, Team Dillon aims to make some gains in 2021 team rankings. Both drivers are past Coca-Cola iRacing Series winners — a contrast to last season — and Vincent, in particular, is a perennial playoff contender. Hurst, despite a year away from the driver’s seat, is a bit of a fixture of the series himself, logging 76 starts over five seasons — and he’s scored multiple top fives each year. It’s an interesting mix of baseline consistency (Vincent) with hot-and-cold pops of success (Hurst).

Steve’s bold prediction

It’s a wonder that Corey Vincent didn’t make the playoffs last year. He’ll get it done in 2021. As for Hurst, he’s always been a tough driver to gauge, at least for me. He’s an incredibly savvy and well-rounded team member and setup builder, but it feels like he has a higher-than-normal tendency to end up in the wrong place at the wrong time. Maybe he’ll snag a win in his return to the series.
