May 1, 2021 - Dillard grabs preliminary feature victory at Boone Speedway
1The past month has been one of the most challenging stretches of Cade Dillard’s career. From hard crashes to mechanical failures, the Louisiana native has endured considerable adversity. (Jacy Norgaard photo)

However, over the course of last weekend Dillard enjoyed better luck. In fact, he even added his first win of the year in his S&S Fishing & Rental Inc. No. 97 MB Customs/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model with a World of Outlaws (WoO) Morton Buildings victory in the opening round of the Hawkeye 100 at Boone Speedway.

“I don’t think it’s a big secret that we’ve battled an unbelievable amount of bad luck for the past month. However, there’s been no quit in this team, and to go to Victory Lane this past weekend was a much-needed boost that our whole team needed,” Dillard said. “We got a win on Friday, and then on Saturday we had a fast car and were running in the Top 5 before the flat tire. Even though we had the flat, it was still a good night and a good weekend for us, and we’ll look to build on that in Wisconsin this weekend.”

1Friday night found Cade Dillard in action at Boone Speedway (Boone, Iowa) in the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series-sanctioned Hawkeye 100. With a pair of preliminary features set for Friday, Dillard qualified third-fastest, which positioned him third on the starting grid for the 25-lap A-Main.

Slipping past race-long pacesetter Brandon Sheppard on lap 19, Cade led the remaining six circuits to capture his second win of the season and a $3,000 prize. He topped Shannon Babb, Sheppard, Billy Moyer, and Ricky Weiss at the line.

With the grid for the second preliminary feature set by inverting the top-12 finishers from the first feature, Cade improved four spots in the 25-lapper to register a ninth-place finish.

On Saturday, Dillard picked up a heat race victory, locking him into sixth-starting position for the $30,000-to-win Hawkeye 100. Starting on the second row for the first-ever three-wide start, Cade ran in the Top 5 before suffering a flat tire. He rejoined the tail of the field and went on to salvage a 13th-place finish in the 100-lapper.

April 3, 2021 - Dillard notches runner-up finish in Illini 100 at Farmer City
1 After a spirited battle for the lead in the closing laps of Saturday night’s Illini 100 finale, Cade Dillard came up just short of the $20,000 win in his S&S Fishing & Rental Inc. No. 97 MB Customs/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.

From the sixth-starting spot Dillard surged to the lead on a lap 70 restart, and paced the next four laps before Bobby Pierce slipped past on the white flag lap.

“We had such a long green-flag run, and honestly I didn’t even know where I was at,” said Dillard. “Then we had the caution and they said we were third, and then Thornton fell out and that put us in second.

“I was probably just too conservative at the end. I probably should’ve just, when I got to the lead, ripped the top. I was hoping not to get took out being up there in the lead like that, but I was so good through the middle and the bottom the whole race and I stayed there. By the time (crew chief) Donnie (Pederson) pointed at me to get up, it was too late at that point.

“We had a good car,” he added, “but I probably should’ve been a little more aggressive at the end. After the bad luck we’ve had for the few months on the Outlaws tour, we’ll definitely take this finish and look to build on it at Bristol.”

On Friday afternoon, Cade Dillard was one of 46 World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series entries on hand at Farmer City Raceway (Farmer City, Ill.) for the opening round of the two-day Illini 100. After registering the eighth fastest lap in his time trial group, Dillard posted a third-place finish in his heat race. Starting the $6,000-to-win preliminary feature in 12th, Cade advanced forward six spots in the 25-lapper to register a sixth-place finish.

1The following night, Cade timed in fourth fastest in his group before placing second in his heat race behind Bobby Pierce. Receiving the sixth-starting position for the $20,000-to-win Illini 100 via the redraw, Dillard powered ahead of Chris Madden for third on lap 67 and overtook Bobby Pierce for the lead three laps later following a lap-70 restart. Unable to keep early race-leader Pierce at bay in the closing laps, Cade Dillard notched a runner-up finish behind Pierce with Brandon Sheppard, Chris Madden, and Rick Eckert rounding out the Top-5.  (Jacy Norgaard photo)

Inheriting the lead just before halfway, Dillard led the remaining distance in his S&S Fishing & Rental Inc. No. 97 MB Customs/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model to earn a $7,000 payday.

“I knew I had a really good car at the beginning so I was trying to ride around the bottom as long as I could, but I knew the top was probably better but it’s easy to mess up (running) up there,” Dillard said. “Once that happened (the incident ahead of him) I knew it was probably time to go so we moved up. We’ve had a lot of bad luck lately, so it’s pretty rewarding to do this in front of my family and just be close to home in general.”

Friday night found Cade Dillard in action at Boothill Speedway in Greenwood, La. for the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) doubleheader. Drawing 34 cars for the Ronny Adams Memorial, Dillard edged his way into the opening night feature with the third and final transfer spot in his heat race.

1Making the 12-hour trip to Volusia Speedway Park (Barberville, Fla.), Cade Dillard was one of 38 World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series entries on hand on Thursday afternoon to kick off the 2021 season with the DIRTcar Sunshine Nationals. Taking the Top-4 from heat races, Cade posted a runner-up finish behind Dale McDowell, which positioned him sixth on the starting grid for the opening night feature. Clawing his way to the front, Dillard snuck past race-long pacesetter Kyle Bronson after the leader bobbled on lap 21 to assume command of the top spot.

After contact with another competitor on the restart slowed his momentum, Cade slipped back to second in the closing laps, placing him second on the rundown behind Kyle Bronson with Kyle Strickler, Rick Eckert, and David Breazeale rounding out the Top-5.
