  • Welcome Back! This weekend we welcome Denali Aire on the hood of the No. 88 Menards Toyota Tundra.
  • Quotable: “Be ready to be on the edge of your seat because it’s going to be exciting. Running my dirt modified at the track last week helped seeing what the track did throughout a run and how it changed. I definitely learned some stuff to apply to this weekend to my No. 88 Denali Aire / Menards.” – Matt Crafton
