Driver Scott Lagasse Jr. on Racing at Home:

"I think we all look forward to racing at Lowe's because it's close to home for us. We get to spend each night in our own beds and then get up in the morning and do what we love to do and that's race. Plus there are so many great activities and appearances we get to participate in. They go all out around here with Speed Streets, concerts, charity events. It's just a neat experience to be a part of on and off the track. Performance wise, I didn't have a bad showing there last year and now that I have some experience and that comfort level with my crew I think we will be a top-10 contender."
