“Excited to get to Charlotte for the Four-Wide Nationals coming off of Vegas. Our team is very motivated and we’re looking forward to carrying that momentum. The competition has been tough but we always love going to zMAX Dragway; it’s one of our favorite tracks to race at and we’re really excited to get back there and see what we can do with our Matco Tools, Lucas Oil, Toyota Top Fuel dragster. We said Vegas was battle royal No. 1, and now we’re ready for battle royal No. 2.”
