  • Truex: “This weekend we’re going to Charlotte Motor Speedway. We’ve got a new sponsor, Phantom Fireworks, so we’re really excited to get the Phantom Fireworks Chevy on the track. We tested two weeks ago and got some good notes. Charlotte’s a tough track; it’s bumpy and rough. I kind of have no idea what I’m doing when I get on it so luckily we had the test because it’s been rough to me in the past. The big this is going to be getting our Phantom Fireworks Chevy handling well and seeing how it reacts to PJ1 and the track bite they put down on the track. That’ll make for an interesting race and hopefully we can get these guys a good finish on Saturday.”
