– Sauter has a 65-point lead in the NCWTS standings following a third-place finish at Chicagoland Speedway.


“Last year at Kentucky, Turn One and Two were pretty racey when we were running side by side. Turn Three still races a lot like it did before it was repaved. You have that moment where you hold your breath getting in there because it doesn’t feel totally right yet. I always compare Turns One and Two at Texas to Three and Four at Kentucky. Obviously, Texas is fast and so is Kentucky, but Kentucky just feels a little smaller, if you ask me. Where it differs is when you come off Turn Four at Kentucky, it’s like you’re going uphill towards the wall, then downhill towards the start-finish line, then back uphill towards turn one. We had a good truck there last year and it’s a fun place to race so I’m looking forward to going back.”
