John Wes Townley Quotes

"I really like racing at Las Vegas. It's a fast track, and you've got to have a truck that can run basically wide open. Chris Rice and all of the guys that work on these Toyota Tundras back at RAB Racing have done a great job building fast trucks for the speedways. We've been fast at Pocono, Michigan and Kentucky last week, so we certainly have confidence heading to Las Vegas this weekend. I'm looking forward to having another good showing with our Zaxby's Tundra this weekend."

 

Chris Rice Quotes

"Las Vegas Motor Speedway is getting bumpier and bumpier, and handling is going to be a big issue. Turns 3 and 4 are a bit smoother, but through those turns the trucks will be wide open. Lucky for us, one of John Wes's favorite things to do is drive his Toyota Tundra wide open. We're heading to Vegas with one of our favorite trucks, chassis No. 48. We're hoping to build on our momentum from Kentucky and excited to have Zaxby's on the Tundra once again."
