Grant Enfinger Quotes:
On what to expect at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville:
“It’s definitely a fast, high-banked, low-grip short track. That seems to be right up my alley. I like those kind of tracks overall. (Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville) has been on my bucket list for a while. Everyone has put in a great deal of effort on our Allegiant Travel Chevrolet, and this racecar has a great track record. We want to keep our strong start going, and I think this is a style of racetrack that will play into our team’s favor.”
On the chance to win three-consecutive races for the second straight year:
“What matters to me is being able to win and keep us up in the points (standings) for GMS Racing. We’ll let the records fall where they will. We have the same mindset every time we go to the track. Hopefully it’s good enough to do the job this weekend.”
