Mason Maggio Pre-Race Quote:
On Atlanta Motor Speedway: “Super cool to be able to come back to Atlanta and race in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series. I raced bandoleros and legend cars there for my first couple of years of racing, even winning my first-ever race there.
“To be able to come back and race at this level is a dream come true. A big thanks to Young’s Motorsports and all our partners for the opportunity. Ready to have some fun this weekend”
