Tate Fogleman Pre-Race Quotes:
On Phoenix: “It has been a good three races for everyone on this No. 12 Young’s Motorsports team. In addition to the win at Talladega, we’ve been able to deliver two really solid top-20 finishes at Las Vegas and last weekend at Martinsville.
“Ryan (London, crew chief) brought me a really good truck to Martinsville last weekend, circumstances fell in the way of us getting another top-10 finish this season.
“It’s on to Phoenix where we are hopeful that we can continue this momentum and end the season on a high note for not only the Young family but everyone who supports and has supported our No. 12 program throughout the year.”
