Matt Kurzejewski on Racing at Salem Speedway:

“Salem is one of my favorite tracks to race.  The last time we were here, we had a very good car and I got into the wall a little and hurt our chances at a top-5 finish.  I’m truly excited to get back to Salem now that I have a race under my belt there.”
