– No Days Off: While most NCWTS drivers were enjoying some time off since the last event at Talladega Superspeedway, Grant Enfinger took advantage of some extra seat time by returning to the ARCA Menards Series and competing in the season finale at Toledo Speedway. The 2015 series champion was poised for a victory before getting moved out of the way with two laps to go, finishing in the third position.
– Breast Cancer Awareness: As part of a team tradition, Grant Enfinger will be honoring several women who have been affected by breast cancer with pink ribbons lining his No. 23 Chevrolet at Homestead-Miami. The women highlighted are family members of GMS Racing employees directly associated with his team.
– #FearTheFinger Playoffs Profile: Due to a late-race crash caused by a cut tire at Talladega, Grant Enfinger enters the Round of 8 cutoff race scored in eighth position in the points standings. The veteran is 29 points below the cutline and has one goal in mind for Homestead – win the race and advance to Phoenix. Enfinger has one previous Championship 4 appearance, which came during the 2020 season. Through five races in the playoffs, Grant has scored one win, four Top-fives, and four Top-10 finishes.
– GE Quote: Enfinger ‘s thoughts on what it takes to tackle Homestead:
“Knowing the task at hand, I can’t wait to unload our Champion Power Equipment Chevy in Homestead. Jeff and I have ran well there in the past, and with the low grip and high tire wear, that place has always been one of my favorites. You’ll see guys painting the line, running the middle, and eventually running up on the fence, and it’s going to make for a great show. We know what we need to do, so now it’s all about our execution. I’m excited!”
