From the Driver’s Seat with Gray Gaulding: “I always love racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, it’s a flat track but you carry a lot of speed into the corners. The NCWTS race was always a good one and I look forward to racing my No.20 Gemini Southern / Krispy Kreme Silverado up there this weekend.”
On top of Box with Crew Chief Chris Rice: “New Hampshire Motor Speedway is a tricky track, it takes a lot out of the driver knowing how much speed you carry down the straight-a-ways and how flat the corners are. It’s not your typical short track and track position will be crucial during the entire race. The whole program at NTS Motorsports is on the up swing and I fell confident in our teams, drivers, and trucks this weekend.”
