From the Cockpit:

John Hunter Nemechek: “I’m really looking forward to getting behind the wheel of the 54 for the first time. It’s an exciting opportunity to be in a fast Toyota Supra and be able to compete for the owners championship alongside Ty. Sport Clips has been long-time partner at JGR and there’s a list of great drivers that have won for them over the years. Hopefully, I can add my name to that list on Saturday and reward them for this opportunity. The 54 has been in victory lane several times this year, so it’s proven to be a strong contender each time it’s on track and now it’s my chance to win. We just have to go out there and get the job done.”
