“Our team had a solid weekend, where we were again able to show a lot of speed,” Bruening commented. “We were experimenting with some different stuff at 300 Raceway to get ready for the upcoming Yankee Dirt Track Classic. I was very pleased with how the car responded. We’re focused on winning that race for the third time later this month.”
