Grant Enfinger’s Quote:
“Berlin is definitely its own unique race track. You have very little grip and very little banking. It’s different from most of the other short tracks we race. It seems like most of the other short tracks we visit are very high speed and Berlin is really low speed, basically a circle how you drive it. I always look forward to going to Berlin. We are going to unload a very similar package as we raced last year and I am hoping we can get dialed in and bring home a win in the No. 23 Allegiant Travel, Alamo Rent A Car Chevrolet SS.”
