Gaulding on returning to the Sunshine State with one goal… “We have got to kick off the season in high gear. When you unload fast, especially at the first race, it sets the tone for the season; I know that’s exactly what Doug Howe has in mind when we unload on Saturday at New Smyrna Speedway.”

From the Driver’s Seat with Gray Gaulding: “I’m really looking forward to getting back to the track, this off-season has felt like an eternity. We had a good run going last year at New Smyrna, we just got too tight late in the race. Doug {Howe] and I have been talking about what we need to do to be better and with all the off-season preparations; I have full confidence in the entire team.”

On top of Box with Crew Chief Doug Howe: “I’m as ready as anybody to get back to the track. We all have been looking for that extra edge, trying to find every little ounce, and I know that Gray has been looking for that extra edge with his off-season training.”

Chassis Facts: Doug Howe has chosen chassis NTS-102, a new chassis the team built over the off-season.
