Chatting with Grant Enfinger…
How do you approach a track like Loudon, a track you’ve never raced on?
“For all tracks I haven’t raced at before, I’ll go through and watch past races and I’ll talk to guy’s that have raced there before. I’m approaching Loudon the same way. Fortunately, crew chief Jeff Hensley has been to all of these places multiple times, so I lean on him a lot. I’ll also talk with my teammates before and after the practice sessions there.”
What are your goals for the remainder of the season?
“Since we are not in the playoffs our goals are simple, we just want to win races. I think if we hit it right, we can get a win at any of the next seven races.”
