"It's just an honor to drive the #55 Airlink Enterprises/Spade Motorsports entry for Treadway Racing," said Treadway. " We worked on race set up all day yesterday and have a really solid racecar. We changed to light fuel this morning for qualifying and went quicker right away. I'm happy starting 14th. There are a lot of fast guys that have won races behind me. I just plan on being patient and making to the checkered flags."

The team also unveiled it's new blue, yellow and white paint scheme for season long title sponsor Airlink Enterprises.

"Ricky did a great job," said Scott Cronk, Vice President of Treadway Racing. "We're looking forward to the race tomorrow and hosting executives from our new title sponsor Airlink Enterprises. The new paint scheme looks great and you can definitely see it coming. So all our fans need to be looking for Ricky in the blue, yellow and white #55 car tomorrow."
