From the Cockpit: Brandon Jones: “After finding my way back inside the top-five at Iowa Speedway, I feel like we are back on the right path headed into Chicago. I’ll be doing double duty there, so I will have plenty of laps before the Xfinity race Saturday. Chicagoland Speedway is one of those tracks that is multiple grooves and allows for some great racing, as the bottom, middle and top groove can be equally strong depending on how your car is handling. We have had some success there in the past, so I’m looking forward to competing there with my No. 19 Menards Jeld / Wen team.”

From the Pit Box: Chris Gabehart: “After a week off leaving Iowa with a solid top-five run, and a few small stretches of races to get the season started, everyone on the No.19 Menards Toyota Camry team is ready to get the summer grind of the season started in the windy city of Chicago. We have had excellent cars there in the past and Brandon is continuing to hit his stride more and more with us each week so we feel confident we can go to Chicago and continue building our momentum into the summer months.”
