– In nine previous NXS starts on tracks between 1 and 2 miles in length, Gragson has recorded two top fives and six top 10s with a best finish of third coming earlier this season at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

– Gragson currently sits sixth in the championship standings following last weekend’s top-10 performance at Kentucky, 109 points ahead of the 12th and final Playoff position.

 “New Hampshire will be an interesting race for sure. We’ve had some good speed this season on the flatter tracks and hopefully that can resonate into another strong run on Saturday. I know that everyone on this Switch Chevrolet has been working their guts out in the shop and I can’t wait to get to the track and keep this momentum we’ve had throughout the summer going.”
