From the Driver’s Seat with Gray Gaulding: “I always love racing at Phoenix. It is such a unique track with a dogleg backstretch and lots of room for racing. The entire NTS Motorsports program is on an upswing. Chris Rice has really been a game changer for us, and we look to continue improving this weekend at Phoenix.”
On top of Box with Crew Chief Chris Rice: “I’m looking forward to having Gray back in the truck one final time in 2014. He has done a great job learning and improving each time he is behind the wheel. As he is learning, so is this team. We’re continuing to build and improve in the shop and on the track. Hopefully we will have a good run on Friday night in Phoenix to show for it.”
