QUOTES “ISM Raceway has been one of my favorite tracks ever since I first raced there in a K&N West car years ago. I love any racetrack that is unique, and Phoenix might just be the quirkiest one out there. It has a lot of grip, it’s fast, and the racing style there is intense. I’ve got a top-five finish in the Truck Series at Phoenix, but this will be my first short track race in an Xfinity Series car, so I’m anxious to strap in.”
