  • Kaulig Racing comes off of a historic weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway after earning its first back-to-back top-10 finish in team history.
  • RT: “So this weekend we’re at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. We’re coming off of two top-10s in-a-row which is Kaulig Racing history so hopefully we can continue that streak and maybe get up in the top-five and battle for a win. This is really the first true test of our mile-and-a-half set up, I think. Atlanta is so worn out that going to Vegas there’s a lot more speed and I think we’ll learn a lot more about where our car is compared to the competition. I like Vegas. I got a truck pole there last year so I feel good about going there and hopefully we can have another strong run.”
