Sounding Off – Cameron Hayley:

New Hampshire Motor Speedway has been a good track for you, a career-best start (2nd), and two solid finishes. Is this a track you enjoy racing on?

“Loudon has been very good to me, and I have always been really fast there. I haven’t been able to crack the top-five yet, so that is definitely on the agenda for this weekend. We are obviously really disappointed we didn’t make the chase, and feel like we deserve to be there. However, this just gives us the opportunity to go play spoiler, and win some races. It’s a fresh start to the season, and we intend to go win some races starting this weekend.”
