Sunoco Rookie of the Year Contender in the K&N Pro Series East, Dollar has five K&N starts. Earning himself one top-five finish and four top-10 finishes. His season-best finish has been at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway where he finished fourth.

Dollar on Gateway: “Really looking forward to making my first visit to Gateway! This will also be my first time in the ARCA car, but I’m confident that this DGR-Crosley will bring a fast car and help me get up to speed quickly. Excited to get out there and see what we can do!”
Tanner Gray, No. 54 Valvoline Toyota Camry
Tanner Gray and the No. 54 Valvoline team will head to World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway this weekend for the Day to Day Coffee 150. Saturday’s race will mark a sixth-career ARCA Menards Series start for Gray.
Though this will be Gray’s first start at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway, it won’t be his first time on track. Gray was able to get some test laps under his belt when DGR-Crosley had the chance to test at the raceway earlier this week. Collectively this season, Gray has had one top-five and four top-10 finishes in the ARCA Series. Gray’s best ARCA finish was at Michigan International Speedway where he took home a fifth place finish.
The Day to Day Coffee 150 will be broadcasted live on MAVTV at 6:45 p.m., ET.
Gray on Gateway: “We tested at Gateway earlier this week, and I think it went really well. It helped me feel a little more confident going into Saturday’s race. I’ve really enjoyed racing on the 1.5-mile tracks this season, so we will see how we can do on the 1.25-mile track in Gateway. I think it’ll be different than any track I’ve been to for sure, but I’ve been working with my spotter and crew chief and I think we will put together a solid race. It’ll also help that we have two ARCA cars entered this week, so I’ll have another team to lean on. The Trucks are also there so we will watch their lines and learn as much as possible during their practice sessions.”
