Sounding off - Jeb Burton:
What kind of challenges does Kentucky Speedway present for a driver?
"Kentucky is a little rough, so you have to get your truck handling well over the bumps. Also, track position is key in having a good night, so qualifying will be important. I'm looking forward to getting back to the track and improving on our program this season. My guys have been working really hard and we feel like we're a better team than we've shown, we've just had some bad luck, but that's all going to change this weekend. The truck I'm taking is the truck I ran so well with at Kansas and Charlotte earlier this year, so I'm looking forward to a solid run Thursday night."
