From the Driver's Seat with Chase Pistone: "Coming off of a great test at 311 Speedway I am confident in our equipment going into the MudSummer Classic. After last year's great show for the fans, I really am excited to be a part of NASCAR's return to dirt this season. Ryan (McKinney) and the rest of the NTS Motorsports guys have prepared a strong Chevrolet Silverado and it looks great with the treaded Goodyear tires on it. It took me a few laps around 311 to really get used to the feel of racing on dirt, but by the end of the day I really got into a good groove. This will be my first time on dirt and it's sure to be a great weekend."

From the Box with Crew Chief Ryan McKinney: "I am really excited to get to Eldora Speedway for the MudSummer Classic with the No.9 NTS Motorsports guys. Eldora is one of those tracks that has such a rich racing history in it and especially for me growing up in the Midwest. We tested on dirt this week at 311 Speedway and Chase took to it quickly, so I'm looking for good things next week in Ohio."
