Saturday Sit-Down with XFINITY series driver and Hornets fan, Ty Dillon

He's top-5 in points in the XFINITY series, he's married to a Honeybee and he's high on the Hornets this season.

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

NASCAR driver Ty Dillon is busy trying to finish off his XFINITY Series season with a championship but he took a few minutes to talk with us about another one of his loves, the Charlotte Hornets. He is a North Carolina native and has been a fan of both the original Hornets and Bobcats franchises. His wife Haley, will be a familiar face around Time Warner Cable Arena. She was added to the Honeybee roster for the 2015-16 season. In this edition of the Saturday Sit-Down we talk about all the reasons he has to cheer on the teal and purple, his favorite new edition to the Hornets plus the Panthers, barbecue and his basketball skills.

Ty will be showing those skills off at a 3 on 3 celebrity basketball tournament at High Point University on November 3rd. Proceeds will benefit the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma. For more information on how to attend click here.
