Truthfully speaking, the 2020 season was fairly forgettable for Dillon, despite a win. He cruised to Victory Lane at the Texas Motor Speedway, which ended a massive win drought. His last win came in 2018 at the Daytona 500, which was 88 races ago. This means that it is one of the longest gaps between race wins.

Without a doubt, he would have been immensely relieved to finally get the monkey off his back. Obviously, he will be hoping to visit Victory Lane much more often in the 2021 season. However, this will not be a cakewalk, as the other drivers also have designs for winning races and challenging for the title.

One thing is for sure, the coming Cup Series season will be highly competitive. In addition to that, there are a few new additions to the calendar, which should spice up the action. Without a doubt, Austin Dillon will be keenly looking forward to the new season. Hopefully, for his sake, he performs decently for the RCR team in the coming campaign.
