Tate Fogleman Pre-Race Quotes:

On Las Vegas Return: “If there’s a place that can change our luck, I can not think of a better place than Las Vegas. We’ve had nothing but terrible luck the past two races.

“I’m happy to be going to a track where I feel very comfortable as a driver and a place where I’m confident we can rebound with our No. 12 Solid Rock Carriers Chevrolet Silverado.

“Las Vegas has been relatively good to me. We just need to mind our p’s and q’s and race the race track and hope when that checkered flag falls, we find ourselves in a good place.”

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
