From the Driver’s Seat
Cory Roper: “I’m really looking forward to going to Richmond for the first time with the Preferred Industrial Contractors - Carquest Auto Parts F150. Shane Whitbeck and the guys have built a great truck to go to Richmond and we’re going to try some different things on the setup that we believe will do great at this type of racing. My goal for Roper Racing is to have another good finish after coming off a 5th Place finish at Bristol with Chase Briscoe and another great points weekend.”
From the Pit Box
Shane Whitbeck: “This is our first time racing at Richmond with Cory. Our main objectives are to get him seat time and run laps. He’s been spending time on the simulator and feels confident. We should battle to stay on the lead lap. This is really the first true short track race of the season after running Bristol on dirt. It shows the range of the Truck Series and makes for a really entertaining season.”
