In the Driver Seat with Gray Gaulding: “I don’t think I’ve ever been more pumped to get to the race track. I’ve spent a lot of time this summer with the guys inside the shop at Roush Fenway Racing and I have that confidence in myself and the team that we will be a force Friday night. I thought we executed well at Bristol (Motor Speedway) and after the test last month feel like we have a great notebook to start from.”
