QUOTES:

Drew Dollar – No. 15 Sunbelt Rentals Toyota Camry

“I was fortunate enough to race at Memphis (International Raceway) last year, so there’s definitely a lot of things I learned that I’ll be able to apply this time around. I’m excited to get back to a track I’m familiar with and looking forward to getting back in my Sunbelt Rentals Camry. I know my Venturini Motorsports crew prepared me a fast Toyota for this weekend.”

Chandler Smith – No. 20 JBL Toyota Camry

“Never been to Memphis (International Raceway) before but looking forward to marking another new track off the list. Should be a good race for us and I know my Venturini Motorsports team has me a fast JBL Toyota Camry.”

Michael Self – No. 25 Sinclair Oil, Champion Power Equipment Toyota Camry

“Memphis (International Raceway) will be another new track for us, but we’ve made big strides as a team the last few weeks and I’m looking forward to going to another unique track that has a lot of history. It looks like a fun place with a lot of character. It’s big, super wide, but fairly flat and abrasive. I’m anxious to get there and see if we can figure it out.”
