Joey Coulter Quote:
“Chicagoland Speedway has really developed into its own style of track over the past few years. The bumps in Turn 3 and Turn 4 have really added another challenge to the track. Those bumps make for better racing, especially in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. I am looking forward to this weekend with our No. 21 Allegiant Travel Chevrolet Silverado, and keeping our progress moving forward at GMS Racing, like we have all year.”
