“I’m excited to get back to Salem! We had a lot of success earlier this year with our GMPartsNow Chevrolet, getting the pole, leading a handful of laps and finishing up third. I think we should have a good baseline and improved package from earlier this year, to hopefully get those two extra spots with our KBR Development car on Saturday night.”
