Chase On Milwaukee:
Chase is heading into the historic Milwaukee Mile coming off his second consecutive top 20 finish. Last week at Memphis, the 20-year-old rookie piloted his #8 DODGE to a solid 18th place finish. Montgomery and his BHR2 team head into Milwaukee this week looking to continue with their positive momentum.
"I have never been to the track in Milwaukee. We had the same situation at Martinsville earlier this year and we eventually got a hold of the track and came home with our best finish of the season thus far. I would like to think that we can accomplish the same thing this week at Milwaukee. We will be taking the same truck that we ran last week at Memphis so we have a little bit of a head start there. I am confident in the truck after the race last week and if I can quickly get a hold of this track 0x2022 then we should be in for another good run this week."
#8 DODGE at Milwaukee:
For the second week in a row, Chase will pilot the chassis named "Chunky". The truck proved to be very responsive last week at Memphis and the team looks to use that to their advantage this week at Milwaukee.
Chase will be making an appearance at the DODGE Merchandise trailer from 3:00 0x2022 4:00 p.m. on Friday afternoon. The trailer will be located behind the main grandstands along merchandise row.
Impound After Qualifying:
With all on-track activities being held on Friday - much like a one day show, all trucks will be impounded after qualifying. Other than minor adjustments allowed by NASCAR when instructed, the trucks will be lined up for the race just like they were qualified.
"I like the idea of having the trucks impounded after qualifying and racing them like they are," says Chase. "It is a good mix-up for the teams as opposed to the regular final practice session that we normally get. It is like Saturday night racing and just about everyone has some good memories of their days doing that. Along with it giving the guys on the crew a different approach this week, it really makes the race interesting and presents a whole new persepctive to the events of the day."
