Ross Chastain Quote

“We’re off to Kansas this weekend. Although it’s another mile and a half, the same distance as Kentucky and Texas that we’ve just raced at, it’s totally different, because it’s not a repave. Unfortunately, they had to repave Kentucky and Texas a few years ago. Kansas is still hanging on. It’s worn out. We’ll run up towards the wall. Last year in the truck race, we were able to win, and that was about a groove off the wall or half a groove off the wall, which is my sweet spot. AJ Allmendinger, Justin Haley, and myself seem to really thrive when we are about half a groove off the wall. If we have to go all the way up there we will, but there are options. We’ll start off the race on the bottom and on the restarts we’ll be able to make big slide jobs on people. I’m looking forward to it.

We’ve got Dyna-Gro on the car this weekend, another new paint scheme. I can’t wait to keep promoting all of Nutrien Ag Solutions’ and Loveland Products’ different products and everything that is agriculture and farming. Kansas is big farmland. We will be the last race at Kansas of the weekend. The Cup Series goes early — they will get the track rubbered in. Then, there’s a couple truck races and an ARCA race. I can’t wait to get on the track on Saturday night at 5PM Eastern on NBCSN.”
