From the Driver’s Seat with Gray Gaulding: “I like most drivers have always enjoyed watching dirt racing, but I have never raced on dirt. I got to test earlier this week at 311 Speedway just to learn the feeling of pitching the truck and understanding how much grip you have on exit. I can’t wait to ride the cushion and get after it Wednesday night.”

 

From the Box with Crew Chief Jeff Hensley: “Eldora is a unique race track in general, especially for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. I was able to be apart of last year inaugural event and after the test session at 311 earlier this week we are all excited about next weeks race. Gray is a really good young driver and picks up on things very quickly, he will do just fine Wednesday night.”
