– Noah Gragson will make his first NXS start at Chicagoland this weekend.

– Gragson has earned one top five, two top 10s and one pole position in two previous starts in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series at Chicagoland, with a best finish of fourth coming in 2018.

– Gragson has also made one previous start in the ARCA Menards Series at the facility in 2017, recording a fourth-place finish.

– MagnaFlow, the Oceanside, Calif. car exhaust manufacturer, is on board the No. 9 Chevrolet at Chicagoland for the first time this season.

“Chicago should be a lot of fun this weekend. We have a ton of positive momentum on our side right now and I am really looking forward to trying to keep that going with Dave (Elenz, crew chief) and everyone on this JR Motorsports team in Chicago. Plus, we have a new partner on board our No. 9 Chevrolet for this weekend with MagnaFlow. I can’t thank them enough for their support and hopefully we can give them a great run on Saturday.”
