News and Notes:
Chatting with Grant Enfinger…
Right now you are in the cat bird seat as the Regular Season Champion. How big are those 15 bonus points that are awarded to the winner?
“That’s equivalent to three wins. It’s huge in regards to how that sets you up once you get seeded in the Playoffs. If we can pull off the regular season championship, you are guaranteed a spot, and those extra points. Unfortunately, the stars haven’t lined-up yet to get a win, but there is still a lot of racing left to do. We’ve had a solid season so far and some really fast Ford F-150’s. Our team is in a great place, and we are just going to keep doing what we’ve been doing all year.”
How do you navigate the Tricky Triangle?
“I’m anxious to get to Pocono. It’s a track I’ve always enjoyed racing at. From the driver’s seat, it’s an awesome place to navigate. It’s different, you can’t get in a rhythm, you have to have reference points on the track. I’ll be honest, I’m talking to myself the whole time – ‘ok here’s my point going into one, here’s my point for two’ – so that’s a little different from most of the tracks where we just get into a rhythm and you could drive blind folded. You can’t do that at Pocono. I don’t know the exact plan for the PJ1 there, but I definitely think that’ll change things, but man, Pocono is a track I really enjoy.”
