Crew chief Scott Zipadelli on Charlotte Motor Speedway: “We are taking chassis No. 401 to Charlotte [Motor Speedway], which is the latest chassis design to come out of the TSM shop. We will use Wednesday as a test day and have a large test plan in place to try several different things. On Thursday, we will take our best setup from Wednesday and put it in the car and work on balance for the race.”
Justin Allgaier on Charlotte Motor Speedway: “Charlotte [Motor Speedway] is extremely fun to drive. The track is very wide and we are able to run two and three-wide without a problem. It puts on a great race for the fans. It’s also a home race for several of the team and crew members. We put a lot of effort into Charlotte like we do any other week, but winning there would be huge. I rank it right up there with winning at Daytona [International Speedway].”
