Matt Mills on Friday’s Race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway: “We’ve started the year with two really fast J.F. Electric/Utilitra Silverados, so I’m excited to get back to the track this week,” said Mills. “We don’t have the finishes yet to show that speed, but we are looking to turn our luck around this weekend. I really like racing at Las Vegas and have a lot of laps on this track in the Truck Series and Xfinity Series. We’re going to do our best to run a clean race and put our truck in contention at the end.”

By The Numbers: Friday’s race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway marks Mills’ fourth NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start at the track. His best finish of 15th came in 2022.

Mills also has nine NASCAR Xfinity Series starts at the 1.5-mile track.

On the Truck: Mills’ No. 42 Chevrolet Silverado will race with support from longtime partners J.F. Electric and Utilitra.

Public Appearances: Mills will participate in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series autograph session on Friday, March 1 at 3:30 pm, located in the Neon Garage.

Recapping the Last Race: With no practice before qualifying Matt Mills and the No. 42 J.F. Electric/Utilitra team turned the first laps of the weekend during qualifying on Friday. With trucks impounded after qualifying, the team opted for a setup that would race well, ending up with a 21st-place starting spot. Mills and team showed speed in the race, battling to the front of the pack by the beginning of the final stage. A pit road penalty late in the race forced the No. 42 to restart at the tail end of the field. Contact with the wall ultimately left the team with a 27th-place finish.

Mills on Last Race at Atlanta Motor Speedway: “We knew our J.F. Electric/Utilitra Chevrolet was fast and am looking forward to Vegas,” said Mills. “Everything was going well. We were trying to have a smart race and that’s what we did in the first two stages. In the final stage we got to lead a few laps. Ultimately, we had to serve a pit road penalty and from there I made a mistake trying to get back to the front when I shouldn’t have pushed for a position.”
