9-26-15 The 2015 season has had its lows and highs for Team CDM but it finally seems to be looking up again. After making the swap to a Hughes Racing Chassis about a month ago Caleb has 2 back to back wins at Sabine Motor Speedway two weeks ago and last weekend. The first win being Caleb's highest paying purse to win collecting the $800. It seems that Team CDM is getting some momentum back at the end of the year. Caleb has also chalked up 4 wins in a row in the Southern Dirt Modified class that he drives for Timothy and Chris Bates!
This past weekend was the $2500 to win Fall Southern Showdown at SMS on Friday and the $2500 to win Doris Dowden Memorial on Saturday night and it was looking to be a really good weekend for Caleb. Starting 8th in the F.S.S, Caleb found himself 5th at the end of the night with a really good car. Saturday night at 171 Speedway Caleb started second in the first heat and was able to get the win. Since the event was running USMTS style passing points, Caleb re-drew from the top 8 and was set to start the $2500 to win main event from the front row outside alongside Jamie Buford, then Dougie Murphrey and Cade Dillard behind him. After a couple of original restarts Caleb found himself finally getting a good jump and got out to the lead on a one lane rubbered up track. At the half way stop the teams were allowed to change a right rear tire only and add fuel. Caleb went on to lead up till lap 35 of the 50 before losing a drive shaft under a caution. Definitely a huge heart breaker for Team CDM but it was looking as if Caleb had that one wrapped up in the bag before a mechanical issue took him out of contention. However, it was definitely a huge stepping stone to even be leading a race of that caliber against the toughest guys around!
9/27/14 Team CDM went to SMS to see what was in store. Starting 3rd in the heat, we had brake issues on the first lap that sat us out for the rest of the heat. That put us starting in the 12th position and in the 15 lap feature Caleb found himself in 4th with 5 laps to go on a restart. Caleb was able to pick his was to the front and pass for the lead with two laps to go to pick up the 7th win of the season and the 23rd of his career!
Team CDM has been really tough the last few races..Really liking the way the car is handling! We've clinched 6 wins this year and locked up the points championship so Caleb is now your 2014 Sabine Motor Speedway Track Champion for the second time! We ran 2nd last weekend but almost won it at the line with a photo finish. See you at SMS this weekend!
6/14/14 Caleb picked up the heat and feature race win at SMS making that the 4th win of the season. Trying to keep the momentum rolling throughout the year! The new SideBiter is only getting better so far!
A few weeks ago Team CDM traveled to ArkLaTex speedway for one of the toughest shows of the year, the Doug Murphrey Memorial. With 90 of some of the best modified drivers in the country competing, Caleb was able to make it into the feature by racing his way in through the A-Qualifier with only the top 5 transferring. Starting 17th in the 50 lap A-main Caleb ran most of the race in 11th but an 8 lap to go restart led to getting shuffled around and into the 15th position. All in all nothing to hang our heads about having been our goal was to make it into the big show against those caliber of drivers!
The last two weekends Team CDM has went to Sabine Motor Speedway and picked up a win and a strong second place finish. The new SideBiter is getting better every weekend though! Next weekend will be back at SMS again!
Caleb finished out the year with a 5th place finish at Diamond Park Speedway in Murfreesboro, Arkansas after starting from the 7th position in the $2000 to win A-main. Caleb charged from 6th to 2nd in the heat race to make it into the field straight from the heat race. We're now in the process of putting together the first brand new car for Caleb! Stay up to date on the progress! See you in 2014!
Saturday, October 26, Caleb and and Team CDM were able to finally capture a 'Run What You Brung' show at Leesville 171 Speedway! Caleb earned a $600 check after starting from P3 in the heat race and then starting P1 for the feature and never looked back leading every lap. This was also Leesville's last night to race for the 2013 season so that makes it a little bit sweeter. Now onto SMS Track Championship and the $3500 to win Fall Southern Showdown November 8 and 9! Hope to see you there!
Saturday, September 21, Caleb and the CDM crew were able to capture win #3 of the year at Sabine Motor Speedway after winning the heat race and leading every lap of the feature! Next up is the Fall Southern Showdown at SMS Oct. 4-5!

Saturday, July 21, everything seemed to fall right in place for Caleb Dillard. After drawing a #1 he was able to win the first heat and start on the pole for the 25 car $700 to win modified A-main. Caleb went on to lead every lap but was pressured quite a few times. With a green white checker restart, Caleb was able to wheel the Robeline Rocket to the 6th win of the season just by a nose! Hopefully the fans enjoyed that one and we can't thank them enough for pulling an all nighter after a rain delay. Thanks again to my mom and dad, Grandparents, Napa Auto Parts, Hanks Portable Building Hauling, McGraw Chiropractic, WAR Shocks, and all our awesome crew and family!

Caleb had a great weekend going for him at the 6th Annual Doug Murphrey Memorial this past weekend. He was able to pull off 9th in passing points out of the nations 93 best modified drivers. Caleb ran 2nd in the first set of heat races and made his way from 8th to 2nd in the second set of heats on Friday night. This lined Caleb up for the front row outside on Saturday nights A-Qualifier and they were taking the top four. Caleb was in the transfer spot but they had a restart and Caleb and another car got together ended up finishing 6th. The crew rushed to get the car back together for the last chance race and Caleb started on the pole of it and they were taking the top two to the feature. Caleb had already stretched his lead out to about 3 car lengths and on the first lap blew up a rearend and killed his chances of making the DMM. However, Caleb had a very good shot all weekend of making the show but luck just wasn't on his side Saturday night. He gained a pile of experience racing with the caliber of guys he was and Dillard Motorsports can't say thanks enough to those who make this possible for us!
Caleb was able to score win #5 this past weekend at SMS! Now the whole Dillard Motorsports crew are pulling together to try to get prepared for the $10,000 to win Doug Murphrey Memorial this weekend at Arklatex Speedway! We're planning to be up there Thursday to try to get the Robeline Rocket dialed in for the biggest show of the year!
Caleb and the Dillard Motorsports crew captured the 4th victory of the season this past weekend at Sabine Motor Speedway! We're planning to be back at SMS this coming weekend and then hopefully competing in the Doug Murphrey Memorial at Arklatex Speedway June 1st & 2nd! Thanks for everyone who stands behind me to do this!
The Dillard Motorsports crew made the haul to Arklatex Speedway last Saturday night. Caleb started 6th in the heat and ran 2nd which put him on the second row outside for the 24 car modified field feature. Caleb had a very strong run going as he took the lead on lap 5 but eventually fell back to 2nd. They then had a green white checker restart and Caleb was battling back for the 2nd spot while intentionally getting taken out coming off of turn 2 on the last lap. Caleb then got turned around in front of the whole field while getting contact on the right front. Caleb and the crew had a great car and will be back at Arklatex again in a few weeks. As for now we've almost got the Robeline Rocket back in racing shape and plan to be back at Sabine Motor Speedway this weekend!
