New Hampshire is really flat. It’s tough to set the car up there and get it to turn but still have rear grip in it. I’ve been on both ends of having success but also have struggled. With this car, I enjoyed it last year but definitely needed to be a little bit better getting around the racetrack. Being up front here is critical but with the long runs we typically get, it’s easy to burn off the tires. It’s a challenging racetrack that we have struggled at as a company, but we have to potential to be better at.

“Loudon typically isn’t one of my best tracks. I’ve had some success there, but I’ve just kind of always struggled to find a rhythm. Fortunately, we’ve taken some great steps forward with our cup program these last few races. I’m definitely more optimistic heading to New Hampshire with how competitive we have been.”

“I enjoy racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. It’s a different type of track than what we see on a regular basis. The corner is flat, and there is not much banking to hold you. It’s important to have a car that allows you to get into the corner deep. I know that everyone at Kaulig Racing will prepare a fast Chevy that will allow us to be aggressive and make passes. It’s a fun track, and I’m looking forward to getting to the Northeast with LA Golf and all of the partners on the No. 10 car.”

I’ve never raced at New Hampshire before, so I’m going to be learning a lot in the practice session Friday. The weather doesn’t look great, and I know we can race in the rain there as well. I might be learning a lot this weekend on the fly! We’ve had positive momentum at a bunch of races lately but just haven’t gotten the finishes we need. I think that it’s all a part of the process, though. Running up front consistently, like we have been, will eventually lead to more breaks and better luck down the line.
