Chatting with Grant Enfinger…
 
“We had a really strong run last year at Dover, and I can’t wait to get back there. It’s a tough, high-banked, fast-paced mile that demands respect as a driver, and requires some finesse. Some drivers have even compared coming out of the corners, onto the backstretch, as something similar to a rollercoaster – they don’t call it the ‘Monster Mile’ for nothing.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
