From the Cockpit:
Daniel Suárez: “I’m looking forward to Friday night and getting back behind the wheel of my ARRIS Tundra. We only have a few races left this year, and I want nothing more than to get a win for the guys at KBM that work so hard on this truck each week. Chicagoland is a really fun track to drive and there is nothing better than racing under the lights on a Friday night!”
From the Pit Box:
Bono Manion: “I’m looking forward to racing at Chicagoland Speedway on Friday night and trying to get our first win of the season with Daniel and this ARRIS team. We have two practice sessions on Thursday and we will work really hard on the setup and getting our ARRIS Tundra ready for the race. Everyone here at KBM has been working really hard to get the ARRIS Tundra in victory lane, and it would be great to get our first victory of the season on Friday and gain some momentum as we move into the final months of the season.”
