From the Driver’s Seat with Gray Gaulding:
“I am ready for Columbus, we struggled there in 2013 but with the way we have been running the past five races I feel like we will be a contender Saturday night. Columbus is a unique racetrack, it has supper tight corners and everything happens really fast. It’s a mixture of Bowman Gray and Langley so it’s guaranteed to put on a great show for the fans.”
On top of Box with Crew Chief Doug Howe:
“Columbus is close to my hometown of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. I grew up going to races and have always enjoyed going back. We have been running really well lately and I would love to end up back in victory lane Saturday night.”
