What initially appeared to be a disappointing weekend turned into a commendable performance as Garcia secured a 6th place finish at Charlotte. Last year at Gateway, he demonstrated his potential by finishing 10th after starting 7th. The No. 13 team aims to secure a win in the next five races, with Garcia currently 52 points away from a playoff position. The strong chemistry between driver Jake Garcia and crew chief Rich Lushes remains a significant asset. Keep an eye on the No. 13 team this Saturday at Gateway.

Still in pursuit of his first win, Majeski heads to a track where he enjoyed considerable success last year, having led 55 laps and started from the pole position. Unfortunately, a late-race incident ended his efforts to secure a victory.

Luke Fenhaus will make his Craftsman Truck Series debut this Saturday at Gateway, driving the No. 66 Soda Sense Ford F-150. In just four ARCA Menards Series starts, Fenhaus has achieved one win, two top-five finishes, and three top-ten finishes. Additionally, he won the inaugural Cars Pro Late Model Tour championship in 2022. In his debut, Fenhaus aims to learn as much as possible despite the challenge of limited practice time—only 15 minutes—and just two qualifying laps. Nonetheless, expectations are high for a strong performance from the No. 66 on Saturday.
