NASCAR drivers take on April Ross in Battle for the Beach

OVER THE RHINE, OH (FOX19) - NASCAR Nationwide Series drivers Austin Dillon and Brian Scott joined NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Ty Dillon in a volleyball match in Washington Park on Thursday.

The drivers took on United States Olympic beach volleyball silver medalist April Ross  in the Battle of the Beach exhibition game.

"We were only supposed to play one game, but it got really competitive. The brothers wanted to beat each other pretty bad. We ended up losing that game, then, Brian and Ty said 'we're playing another one'," Ross said.

Ross will play in the Association of Tennis Professionals Cincinnati Open on Friday. The NASCAR drivers also have a busy schedule ahead with the NCWTS Kentucky 201 on Sept. 21 and Kentucky Speedway's NNS Kentucky 300 on Sept. 22.
