Chatting with Grant Enfinger…

On having two wins already this season and the No. 98 teams approach for the remainder of the 2020 Regular Season…

“It’s definitely a great feeling having two wins already this year. It gives not only myself, but the entire team the confidence to do our job even better. With the way the Playoffs are structured this allows us to be a little more aggressive in some situations, and our goal is to keep accumulating Playoff Points by winning stages and races.”

On racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway for the first time in June vs. the series traditional visit in November.

“I’m really looking forward to racing at Homestead, in the middle of June. I feel like it’s going to be a sloppy race for a lot of people. I think we’re going to be slipping and sliding around a lot more than usual. We’re usually racing there in November, at night. So, with it being June, it’ll probably be worse case scenario for grip. It should be fun sliding all over the place, so I’m definitely looking forward to this weekend.”
