“I’ve had some great success at Epping, including getting my 50th No. 1 qualifier there last year. This is one of those tracks that gets me closer to home on the East Coast. We have our Matco Tools distributor “Wild” Bill’s bus trip with all our Matco customers and distributors that ride the bus out to Epping, and they always have a good time. They show up for us and that’s why we show out for them. So, really looking forward to getting up there, and hoping we can carry the momentum from Chicago into this weekend. That was a special win and a heartfelt race for all of us at ABM. We had a crew member who lost his father right before Joliet, so it was a trying time, but that victory was a testament of how we stick together as family. We’re looking to bring that same energy and level of focus and calmness into this weekend.”
