Mike Skinner on racing at O'Reilly Raceway Park

"O'Reilly Raceway Park is such a fun track. It's short-track racing at its best and a place I really look forward to racing at each year. Our team has been improving every week, and with [crew chief] Stacy Johnson calling the shots I'm really looking forward to this race. Stacy and I are friends off-the-track and I think that helps our performance on-the-track."

Crew Chief Stacy Johnson on competing at O'Reilly Raceway Park

"When you look at the record books, Mike Skinner is one of the best competitors out there to have in your truck at O'Reilly Raceway Park. He can consistently run at the front of the field, and with the right strategy calls I think we'll be able to have him racing for the win. Our team did a lot of testing with our trucks this week, we gained a lot of knowledge, and I think you'll be able to see that on the track over the next few weeks."
