Logan Boyett struggled here last month in the Sidewinder 100. He fought an I’ll-handling car and mechanical issues. In the race, he tangled with Will Mack late and ended the night frustrated. Today, he is one of the fastest cars in the track. He really likes the setup under his car. “the car is really really good. A little free off (the corner) but fast. We’re just gonna let it eat and ride.”

After his first run, Mike Garvey is happy with his car so far. That’s not stopping his Buddy’s Home Furnishing team from making a rear gear change. Garvey said, “It’s good but it’s still really early. Just gonna see what we can do to make it faster.” 
1:51
After speaking with Bubba Pollard, he says that his car is off a bit. He said he and his team make it a point to change up the setup early each time they come to the track, and work on it in an effort to stay ahead of the game. Sometimes the newer setups work and sometimes the Pitboxes.com team ends up going back to a tried and true setup.
