BRENDAN GAUGHAN QUOTE:
What are your thoughts on the race at Charlotte Motor Speedway?
“I can’t wait to get back into the truck this weekend. We were riding high on so much momentum before the break in the schedule with back-to-back top-five finishes. I really enjoy the style of racing that comes with these intermediate style tracks, so Charlotte (Motor Speedway) should be a good race for us. My team has worked so hard this season, and as long as we continue to collect solid finishes it won’t be long before we can go to Victory Lane.”
