“Running the K&N West race all came together last minute, but I’m really excited it did. We will be competing at ISM Raceway for a championship next year so the extra laps should help going into that. I think we are going to have a great shot to win the K&N West race, and we should have a fast truck too. I can’t thank Manpower enough for being on the car this weekend, and I’m ready to go out and compete for a win!”
