Driver Scott Lagasse Jr.'s Thoughts Heading into New Hampshire:

"I'm hoping for a clean weekend at New Hampshire. It seems we've fallen victim to a lot of different scenarios out on the race track every weekend. We always find a way to pull ourselves together and bring home a solid finish but a top-10 would be nice. The team fixed our Phoenix car and we'll be bringing it to NH. This is the same one we were running in the top-10 with before a late race incident sent us to the garage early. It's a solid race car so as long as we stay out of trouble I think we'll be really good on Saturday."

Driver Scott Lagasse Jr. on New Hampshire Motor Speedway:

"I've only raced at New Hampshire Motor Speedway once and I didn't get a lot of miles in so I'm heading into this with the "rookie" state of mind. I'll take some time to talk to other (veteran) drivers and get familiar with the race track during practice. Basically start with a fresh attitude about the race track. "
