ANTHONY ALFREDO QUOTES:
You have been strong on every 1.5-mile race track you have competed on this season. What excites you the most about going to Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend?
“I’m really excited to head to Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend in our No. 21 Sim Seats Chevrolet Camaro. Not only have we had impressive speed at the 1.5-mile race tracks this year, but I actually ran at Las Vegas twice last year in the Truck Series. There hasn’t been many tracks this year that I’ve been to previously, so that gives me a little bit of added confidence heading into the race.
What are some key differences that separate Las Vegas Motor Speedway compared to some of the other 1.5-mile racetracks?
“Las Vegas Motor Speedway is a little different than most tracks because it doesn’t have as much tire fall-off as some of the other 1.5-mile tracks. It still is important to have a car that handles well, mainly because of the big patch of bumps heading into turn 1. It also can provide multi-groove racing which really fits my driving style. With the speed our whole Richard Childress Racing team has been bringing to the race track every weekend, I would not be surprised if we parked our No. 21 Sim Seats Chevrolet in victory lane on Saturday night.
