From the Driver’s Seat:

Taylor Gray: “I’m excited to make my first Xfinity Series start this weekend. I’m sure there will be a little bit of a learning curve, but I’ve been working with Seth and the JGR guys in the simulator and the shop to prep for my races and feel like we are in a spot to have a solid weekend at Richmond.”
