Chase On Mansfield:

Chase is coming off his career best NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series event last month at Martinsville with a 16th place finish. The native Tennessean is looking to build on that performance and gain some momentum as the series enters the busy part of its schedule.

"I am really excited about racing at the new track at Mansfield. I have heard so many good things about the track and it should be fun. I am coming off a good race at Martinsville and I look to keep some positive momentum going here this weekend. We are bringing the same truck that we raced at Martinsville and we should come home with a solid finish as long as we keep our nose clean and stay out of harms way."

#8 DODGE at Mansfield:

Chase will be racing a chassis called "Timmy" this weekend. The chassis was purchased last year and was totally stripped down with a new generation body put on it. Chase ran "Timmy" in his last race at Martinsville with much success and the team looks for a repeat performance from "Timmy"

Crew Chief Randy Seals on Mansfield:

"With this being the first time the series' has raced here, the test session on Friday will be very important. We are looking to use the day to get Chase comfortable with the track and get the #8 DODGE dialed in for the weekend. This is the same truck we had at Martinsville and we want to find that set-up that works best. We are looking for another strong run at this short track much like we had last time out."
