The same applies this year as Lynch will once again take on the task of team leader

Driver Scott Lagasse Jr. On Darlington Raceway:

"I have never raced at Darlington before and I keep hearing stories about the "Lady in Black". From what I have heard it is one of the toughest racks we go to during the season. I've always liked the tracks that were unique so I'm hoping we can get out there and have some positive results. I can already tell it's going to be an interesting and fun night under the lights at Darlington Raceway."

Driver Scott Lagasse Jr. On The Rookie Battle:

"This is one of the best rookie classes I have seen in a long time and to be a part of it is great. Every weekend you see a rookie running up in the top-10 and you just never know who will end up with the top spot. I have a feeling this battle won't be decided until the final race of the season."
