Pre-race quote from Kaz Grala:
On the Talladega Superspeedway: “I have very high hopes for Talladega this weekend. Young’s Motorsports have won two of Talladega’s last three races, so I know we’re going to have a good piece to work with.
“We are focused on getting the #02 flagship truck to Victory Lane for the very first time and we think this weekend could be a great opportunity to do that.
“First we’ll have to survive the chaos that the Truck Series always provides on the superspeedways, so that’s our game plan for racing.
“If we can accomplish that, then we will be in a very good position to capitalize when it counts.”
