- Norwalk is considered a homecoming race for the Matco Tools Top Fuel team. Matco’s corporate headquarters are located approximately 75 miles east of the track in Stow, Ohio, and crew chief Brian Corradi is a native of the area.
“Really looking forward to getting back to Norwalk. We’re coming off of a really good test session this week in Indy, and we’re ready to show out in our Matco Tools Toyota, especially in front of our hometown Matco Tools crowd. Their corporate headquarters are not too far from Norwalk, so this is their home race. I’m ready to step on the gas, turn on some win lights, and have some fun. This track has always been good to us.
“Norwalk is also home to my crew chief Brian Corradi, and we always have a good time doing our annual Master Pizza/Matco Tools customer appreciation dinner so I’m excited about getting out there tonight, having fun, and then on Friday, it’s time to turn our focus to bringing that coveted blue Camping World winner’s circle hat back home to DSR.”
