Ross Chastain Quote

“Another LeafFilter Replacements Series street stock race tonight! This time we will be racing at the old Phoenix. This will probably be the last race for a little while until we figure out the NASCAR schedule. This Replacements race has been the replacement for a lot of us for lack of real racing. They popped up quick – Hamlin and Majors and the whole gang there. They jumped on this horse quick. I’m going to jump out of this recliner. I just took a nap to be honest, so I feel well rested for this iRace tonight. Justin Haley, my teammate, will have the LeafFilter in-car camera, so if you look out his back-bumper camera on his twitch, you’ll probably see me back there. Check it out tonight, the LeafFilter Replacements Series street stock race.”
