Grant Enfinger Quote:

Are you excited about returning to dirt at Springfield?
“It’s going to be interesting, I don’t have a whole lot of experience on dirt. I grew up racing go-karts and a little bit of legends cars on dirt. I have raced the dirt ARCA race four times now; Springfield will be my fifth dirt race. I am really looking forward to it. We did well at Springfield last year, bringing home a third place finish. I am confident the GMS Racing team has prepared a strong dirt package for the No. 23 Triple-K Construction / Baldwin Container Company Chevrolet SS this weekend.”
