Tate Fogleman Pre-Race Quotes:
On Kansas Speedway: “After two decent performances at Kansas Speedway last year, I’m eager to get back there and see if we can improve on them with our Young’s Motorsports team.
“I like the speed and the challenges that Kansas can bring being such a weather-sensitive race track. Hopefully, we can shine under the lights with our No. 12 Solid Rock Carriers Chevrolet.”
On 2021 Season: “I’m proud of everyone on this Young’s Motorsports team – even if we do not have the finishes to show for it. It does not come from a lack of effort from anyone. We will continue to fight. We need to put some points on the board over the next couple of races to head into the summer stretch.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
