Clay Rogers quotes:

On Dover race: “We just didn’t have enough information going there (Dover). It was the first track that we’ve been to this year that neither the team nor I have raced at. Add the new tire that gave everyone trouble and it was the first weekend that we’ve struggled with the handling on the truck from start to finish.”

On racing at Charlotte: “Now Charlotte is a place we know. The team had a great truck there last year before a blown tire ended their run. As a driver, I have a lot of confidence – it’s a place I’ve been coming to a long time.

“We have a good piece for this race and a ton of information and we are ready to put our best foot forward and have a great run.”

Owner Ricky Benton Quotes:

On racing in North Carolina: “It’s good to be coming home this week. North and South Carolina are definitely Black’s Tire and Auto Service country. We are looking forward to Clay and the team bringing home a good finish in front of all of our fans”
