From the Cockpit:
Brandon Jones: “This will be our first time back to New Hampshire Motor Speedway since 2019. It will be nice to head up north and regroup as a team at the one-mile oval. What I find the most challenging is getting corner entry right—it looks really inviting to drive deep into the corner, but it’s very easy to overdrive it. The track requires you to focus on your marks the whole time and communicate with your crew chief to get the car turning right. We have dedicated a lot of time to figuring out the right strategy to manage the 200-laps. We’ve been close there before and my confidence is high. I have been preparing by watching previous races, Toyota simulator and iracing practice. Our team is extremely hungry for a win and see the “Magic Mile” as an opportunity to have a great run and great finish for Menards and Jeld-Wen.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
