Spencer Boyd Pre-Race Quote:
On Richmond Raceway: “Richmond is my favorite track on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series circuit. The track reminds me a lot of like what I grew up doing. Short tracks and wheel-to-wheel racing.
“Hopefully, we can have a good run Saturday night for everyone at Young’s Motorsports and WML Enterprises.”
On Bucks for the Brave: “I so look forward to this event every year,” said Boyd. “It’s hard to put into words the impact that these heroes’ stories have had on me.
“I’m proud to bring light to Record Rack’s efforts in the Veteran and First Responder community. We have been partners for five seasons now so it’s almost like a family reunion when we get together. I love it.”
