After coming off another top-10 finish in Texas where it felt like one slipped away, Justin Lofton used the off week to take advice from his sponsor CollegeComplete.com and take some classes. To be more specific, he attended Rally Driving School in New Hampshire, learning skills that will help him both on the track and in his off-road racing.
This week Lofton visits Kentucky, as he leads the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) point standings with his No. 6 College Complete (http://www.collegecomplete.com or 877-543-2655) ESR team by the way of a race win, three top-five, and seven top-10 finishes.
"The last year has been great," Lofton summarized. "Since returning to ESR, everything has continued to get better. The support of Chevrolet, Richard Childress, ECR (Earnhardt Childress Racing), and of course the group that we have built at ESR is amazing. The guys work hard, and it's all paid off."
With his reaction skills improved after 4 days at Rally School, Lofton is heading to the 1.5-mile Kentucky Speedway this week. He will be driving the same No. 6 College Complete Chevrolet that he pulled into victory lane at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
"Kentucky is one of those places that you have to be on the wheel. It is a lot of fun to drive. It's fast and flat. We've had the speed all year, so it should be another good one for us."
