MACON, GA -- Seven races into the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season, and the drivers are already liking the changes the sport implemented.

"I love it," said Germain Racing's Ty Dillon. "It's been great."

Dillon made his way to Macon to visit employees and fans at a local Geico branch while promoting the upcoming Geico 500 at Talladega Superspeedway on May 7. The rookie says the introduction of stages enhances the quality of a long race.

"I think every 30 minutes to an hour of the race you're getting some action that will impact the whole year and impact our playoff system too," Dillon said.

Consistency has been the theme for Dillon in 2017 finishing in the high teens or low 20's in every race outside of Daytona. He's hopeful to make a jump with successful performances in the coming weeks.

"We got to get up there and get a couple of those top ten points in the segment," Dillon said. "We've had a strong year and we'll get there."

The Monster Energy Cup Series moves to Bristol Motor Speedway for the Food City 500 this Sunday.
