Jeff Choquette just told us he’s ok. He said he felt rusty when he first hit the track today because he had not been on a track since November. He was disappointed because he got held up in slower cars during his mock-run.

The track looks really cool here under the lights. We hope you can make it to THE RACE this weekend. 
8:08
We have had several fan ask if their drivers was on track today. It’s safe to say ALL cars were on track at some point during the day. Hard to keep track with 77 cars total, but we can stand by that.

The weather here today is perfect. Several teams lost their chances to test last week with wet weather and cold conditions. we don’t have any problems today as the temperatures will be in the mid 70’s here today.

One big story that already has taken place in the number 18 of Bubba Pollard. After the 18 car unloaded it was clear that it looks very similar to a Chase Elliott car. Now Pollard did wreck his Pro Late Model at Montgomery last week. Pollard claims they bought from the Elliott group after the wreck. Elliott’s crew chief, Ricky Turner, is here with the car and it raises a eyebrow after Elliott was told not to come back after a tech deal here last season.
