News and Notes:
Chatting with Grant Enfinger…
You’ve finished fourth and second, respectively, at Eldora the last two races. Are you looking forward to getting back to Eldora this year?
“Yeah, in my opinion, it’s the most entertaining NASCAR race of the year. It was a teammate that won last year, but I’m still a little bitter about that one, so I’d definitely like to bring that golden shovel home for the 98 team this year. I feel like we’ve had really fast Ford F-150’s, and we’ve been capable of winning, the stars just haven’t lined-up for us. It would have been nice to get one before Eldora, but I’ve definitely had this one circled on the calendar.”
How much of a wild card is Eldora for the Truck Series?
“As much as a superspeedway or road course, honestly. Not just from a driver’s standpoint – some guys like the dirt, some don’t – but as far as the attrition, especially on your equipment. You fill these radiators up with mud and motors don’t like to run, the bumps and running into the wall, these trucks are not designed for what we put them through, there.”
