Chatting with Grant Enfinger…

“Atlanta (Motor Speedway) is an awesome track with a ton of character. It has one of the most abrasive surfaces as well as a lot of bumps. With all of that it provides us with multiple grooves to use during the course of a tire run. We had a good run there last year and we are bringing a similar setup in our ThorSport Racing F-150. Hopefully we can make it a touch better and get Ford Performance their first Gander Trucks win at AMS on Saturday.”
