From the Cockpit:
Brandon Jones: “After a few rough weeks with constant bad luck and wrong place, wrong time scenarios we are finally headed to one of my best tracks. I have a lot of confidence at Kentucky and my #19 Menards Atlas Supra team has always brought fast cars. I am pumped about getting back to a mile and a half track. We will have two shots at a win with a doubleheader of night races this Thursday and Friday, but I am going for the sweep! We have definitely looked back at our notes from last year, reviewed video and raced several laps at TRD. We are excited to welcome back Menards and Atlas on our Toyota Supra and would love to put them in victory lane.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
