Earlier this year, we didn’t make the right adjustments but we’ve learned from that so I feel we will be a strong contender this weekend. We’ve never gotten back-to-back wins so we are going to try to break that streak by getting our No. 6 Ford Ecoboost Mustang into victory lane.” Crew chief Mike Kelley on racing at Kentucky Speedway: “Four of our five wins have come at 1.5-mile tracks so we have confidence going into this weekend.

We are looking for back-to-back wins which our No. 6 team has never done.”
