· The Car

o Chassis RK-777 will return to the track for its second race of the year. This chassis was last raced at Darlington Raceway, running mid-pack until contact with the wall caused a flat tire, forcing a green flag pit stop and finishing 28th.

· Recapping Road America

o Pastrana and the No. 60 Roush Fenway Racing team overcame multiple on-track incidents to bring home a 16th-place finish in the first road course race of the season at Road America.
o Pastrana moved up one spot to 14th in the NNS point standings.


Pastrana on racing at Kentucky Speedway:

“I've had mixed results on the 1.5-mile tracks so far this year. Kentucky seems like a fun track and I'm hoping it suits me as well as Las Vegas and Atlanta. Matt Crafton really likes it and he's been helping me out a lot since my first laps in NASCAR, so hopefully some of his good luck here rubs off.”
