Thoughts on The Yellow Freight 300:

"I believe we will be well prepared for racing this weekend. Charlie Brunnhoelzl has done a lot to improve the aerodynamics of our race cars in the offseason, that should really help us this weekend." "We need a strong run to regain some momentum and begin to work our way to the top of the point standings. It takes top-fives and top-tens to win the championship, last year we finished third in those categories and finished third in the points race. This race team has the ability to finish in the top-ten every weekend. With strong pit stops, a good qualifying effort and no driver errors, we can reach our goals every race"

PIT NOTES
