Decker on Michigan: “I’m really excited to be back with my team at Michigan. After having a good run at Pocono, it’s a bummer we didn’t have Eldora on our schedule. I’m curious to see what Michigan has in store for us. I’ve been there once before in an ARCA car, but I’m ready to see what we can do in our N29 Technologies Tundra. My spotter and I have been working together and studying film to help prepare. Can’t wait to get back in the truck this weekend!”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
