Grant Enfinger Quote:
“I am excited getting back to Salem Speedway. We go there twice which is always a good thing. I feel pretty confident with the package we are going back there with. We weren’t too bad in the spring, but we weren’t great either so there is room for improvement. Crew chief Jeff Stankiewicz and the GMS Racing crew made a lot of positive changes when we were at Salem testing last Tuesday. We got to play around with a lot of different packages. I am confident that we will have a fast Allegiant Travel Chevrolet for this weekend. ”
