Notes:

– Noah Gragson will make his first NXS start on a road course this weekend at Watkins Glen.

– In two previous starts on road courses in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, Gragson has earned one top five and two top 10s with a best finish of second coming at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in 2017.

– The Las Vegas native has also made a combined 10 starts on road courses in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and West, scoring a total of four wins, five top fives and seven top 10s. Gragson most recently visited Victory Lane in the K&N Pro Series West earlier this summer at Sonoma after starting second and leading 24 laps en route to the win.

Quote:

“I really enjoy racing on the road courses and I’m really excited to get that stretch of the season started this weekend in Watkins Glen. We were able to knock the rust off earlier this year in Sonoma with the K&N car and were fortunate enough to come away with the victory. Watkins Glen is definitely a different kind of animal than Sonoma but I am really looking forward to seeing what we can do this weekend with our West Herr Chevrolet.”
