Grant Enfinger Quote:
What’s it like Heading back to Lucas Oil Raceway?
“I’m excited about getting back to LOR after I had a strong finish with GMS Racing there last year. LOR is definitely not your typical short track. It’s very flat compared to most tracks that we race. It’s kind of a drag race up off the corner. I’m hoping to get dialed in and have a great points weekend with GMS Racing in the Allegiant Travel Chevrolet SS.”
