From the Driver’s Seat:
Riley Herbst: “We didn’t have the finish we wanted at Daytona to start the season, but I’m excited to go home this week and race in front of my home town. Last year I was able to run one of the Xfinity races at Las Vegas and finished in the top 10. Going back for the second time, I’ll be able to use what I learned last year and my experience since then to hopefully finish a few spots better and get our No. 18 Monster Energy Toyota Supra in victory lane.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
