Chatting with Grant Enfinger…

“I’m excited to get back to the track at Las Vegas. We had a good run there earlier this year, finished fourth, and we’ve made a lot of progress over the season on our 1.5-mile program at ThorSport Racing. At Las Vegas, we’ve had good runs, so we have confidence going into this weekend. We will have our Champion Power Equipment Ford F-150 ready for a win on Friday night.”

News and Notes

Las Vegas Return… Enfinger heads to Las Vegas this weekend fresh off the team’s only road course race of the season, and deep in his first career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series playoff berth. Welcoming many guests and notables of team partner Champion Power Equipment at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, Enfinger joined campers enjoying the weekend’s event to meet and greet, sign autographs and hand out Champion swag. Looking ahead to Las Vegas, Enfinger comes off of a fourth-place finish and four laps led in the spring race, and looks to solidify his spot in the NCWTS Round of 6 with a second-career victory.

500 Club… Enfinger’s Spotter, and the team’s general manager, David Pepper, celebrates his 500th consecutive career start in the NCWTS at Las Vegas this weekend. Working in various professional capacities during his tenure, his first in the long line of starts came working as a show truck driver for Scot Walters and Brewco Racing at Walt Disney World Speedway, Jan. 11, 1998. Serving as a rear tire changer, gas man, jackman, public relations, and marketing and business development in past, Pepper currently works as a spotter for various teams across many racing series, in addition to his duties for ThorSport Racing.
