Last year Lofton qualified 2nd and ran up front the entire race, dominating late only to be challenged by Brad Keselowski at the end. But with a late green-white-checker finish Lofton took off and drove away from a battling Ron Hornaday and Brad Keselowski giving Lofton his first NCWTS victory.

"I'm pumped to get back in the ESR #6 to defend last year's win, it's been a tough year not running all the events but I'm going to make the best of this opportunity and go for the win again for ESR and MadVapes"! States Lofton, the 27-year-old ace from Southern California.

"We are excited to be back on board with ESR for our home race, they did a great job for us in Daytona and of course they're the defending race winners so we hope they can repeat this year"! Stated MadVapes CEO, Mark Hoogendoorn.

From Team Owner Eddie Sharp; "It's a privilege to put Justin back in the #6 MadVapes Chevy where he belongs. Last year's win was awesome and the Lofton's are like family to me so words can't express how proud I am to get Justin back, I can't wait for Charlotte this week"!
