At Pocono, Dillon would lead his first three laps in Sprint Cup competition. Dillon took over for Regan Smith in the No. 7 Tommy Baldwin Racing Chevy at the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 as Smith flew back to North Carolina to await the birth of his child.

On November 28, 2016, it was announced that Dillon would replace veteran Casey Mears, who has been with Germain for six years, in the No. 13 GEICO-sponsored Chevrolet for Germain Racing in 2017. Along with GEICO, Twisted Tea was a primary sponsor of Germain Racing for a few races in 2017. Dillon began the 2017 season with a crash in the Daytona 500. In the next race at Atlanta, he scored a 15th-place outing. The next week in Las Vegas, he finished in 21st place. He followed this up with a 16th place finish at Phoenix, a 22nd place finish at Martinsville, and then a 17th place finishes at Texas.

He followed this finish with a 15th place finish outing at Bristol and then a 26th place finish outing at Richmond. At Talladega, Dillon finished a career-best 13th, after avoiding the ‘Big One.

Dillon’s 2020 season started with him DNFing at that year’s Daytona 500, finishing 30th. The next week at Las Vegas, Dillon finished 10th, his first top 10 at a non-plate track. For The Real Heroes 400 at Darlington, he’d start 33rd, determined after a random draw, and finish 19th. The starting positions for the upcoming Toyota 500 would be determined by inverting the top 20 finishers of The Real Heroes 400, giving Dillon a spot on the front row starting 2nd, alongside Ryan Preece. At the YellaWood 500 at Talladega on October 4, 2020, Dillon originally crossed the line and tied his best finish of fourth, but when Matt DiBenedetto was penalized for forcing someone below the yellow line, Dillon was promoted to third and that would be a new career-best finish for him. In Germain Racing’s final season, Dillon finished 26th in the points standings.

On September 22, 2020, it was announced that Germain Racing would shut down after the 2020 season due to lack of sponsorship from Geico, and would sell their charter that guarantees the car would drive in every race in a season to the newly-formed 23XI Racing, led by Michael Jordan and Cup driver Denny Hamlin. After speculation for the previous few days, on January 19, 2021, it was announced that Dillon would attempt the 2021 Daytona 500 for Gaunt Brothers Racing driving the No. 96 Toyota with sponsorship from Bass Pro Shops and Black Rifle Coffee. This will be the first time that Dillon has not driven a Chevrolet in NASCAR and ARCA and gone outside of RCR and teams affiliated with RCR for a permanent ride in NASCAR.

Before the 500, Dillon joined 23XI Racing for the Busch Clash in the No. 23 Toyota; he was eligible for the race due to winning a stage in the 2020 season, while regular driver Bubba Wallace was not. Despite finishing sixth in the first Duel of the 2021 Bluegreen Vacations Duels, Dillon missed the 2021 Daytona 500.
