TIM GEORGE JR.:

What would it mean to you to win the Bill France Four Crown?

"I would love to win it. RCR definitely has a diverse fleet of cars that I can drive on the Bill France Four Crown tracks. I drove those tracks last year, so I feel confident going to those tracks the second time around and I think we should be pretty good in the points there."

GERE KENNON:

How difficult is it to prepare for the Bill France Four Crown?

"Here at RCR it's not that hard because we plan so far ahead. We, basically, have all of our cars ready to go, including our dirt track cars and our short track cars. We're excited to go try to win all four of them."
