Chatting with Grant Enfinger…

“With the repave, it’s going to be fast, and I don’t anticipate the tires dropping off very much. Last year was the first time I raced Gateway, but it’s definitely a track that I’m really looking forward to getting back to. Turns 1 and 2 are pretty high braking, and tight corners. Turns 3 and 4 are flat and wide sweeping. This makes it fun, challenging, and a great track for the Trucks.”
