Driver Point Standings: 6th
Owner Point Standings: 7th
Sunoco Rookie of the Year Contender
Sounding Off - Grant Enfinger:
"Kentucky Speedway is one of only a few tracks on the 2017 schedule that I have experience on, but I guess that goes out the window with the new repave, since last summer. So, in my head we are going to kinda compare Kentucky to Texas - in terms of the same characteristics of the newly paved track - although Turns 3 and 4 are flat at Kentucky, and its vice-versa in Texas. The plan is to unload with that same package we had in Texas, since we were so strong, and take the things we learned there, and apply it to Kentucky this weekend."
