Earlier this week, we asked the question to the fanbase whether or not the Dillon Brothers have held back Richard Childress Racing. The fans came through with some interesting ideas for whether or not the Dillon Brothers have held back RCR during their time in the Cup Series.

Yes, the Dillon Brothers Hold Back RCR

Many fans point to the Dillon brothers as the reason why RCR has experienced a decline in performance in recent years. For many fans, the answer to this question seems obvious, so, many fans did not elaborate too much on this point. However, others pointed out the success of other RCR drives such as Kyle Busch and Tyler Reddick. Others pointed out how, without the Dillon brothers, it could have opened up other seats in the series.

NASCARnerd looks at Tyler Reddick as someone who could have gotten off to a better start with someone like Kevin Harvick as a teammate instead of Austin Dillon.

SimRacinSam says that Kyle Busch’s performance tells the whole story.

Jim calls Austin an “Embarrassment” in the 3 car.

CJK Designs says YES in all caps.

Maxi says that Dillon has shown promise, but the talent RCR has given up is tough to justify Dillon’s current Cup Series status.

Blame Austin, but Not Ty

Some people look solely to Austin as the one who has held back RCR. This is primarily because Ty has never driven an RCR car in the Cup Series, and he has not run RCR equipment full-time since he was in Xfinity. Austin, however, has run for RCR throughout his entire career.

Janeen Welsh says it is unfair to blame Ty because he has never driven for RCR in the Cup Series.

Real Deal Aneil says that Ty never had a shot at RCR.

Kenny Black says that he respects Ty for trying to create his own career path.

Slimm says that he does not understand the hate that Ty Dillon gets.

No, They Do Not Hold Back RCR

Some people do not believe that the Dillon brothers hold back RCR at all. They look to some of the accomplishments of Austin in particular in the lower series and his four Cup Series wins as a reason. They believe it is unfair for the Dillon brothers to be blamed.

Anthony Michael Galzerano points out how Ryan Newman and Daniel Hemric struggled with RCR.

Kevin says that Dillon has helped RCR from a performance perspective in big races, but he has also helped from a business perspective.

Tyler Cochran says that Dillon has not held RCR back, and he points out the performance of Dillon throughout his Cup career.

Philip Pegler says that all the Dillon brothers do is help run a family business.

TH Designs says that no, the Dillon Brothers have NOT held back RCR.

Well, it is safe to say that the fans have strong opinions on this topic. Where do you stand on this issue?
