WHAT THEY ARE SAYING
REID LANPHER, Driver of the No. 8 JR Motorsports Chevrolet, On finally getting a chance to go back to Motor Mile this weekend after two straight rainouts: “I can't wait. I'm really excited. We were good in practice, and we've qualified well there (before rain), and I can't wait to see what we can do in race trim. I think we have a really good package for the races.”
On why he took to Motor Mile so quickly: “It has so much grip. Really, the tracks down south are night and day difference in grip compared to tracks up here. You can really drive off into the corners. That took a while for me to get used to, really. Once I got used to that, I started running some good times.
“I like Motor Mile. I think it's an awesome track and a great facility. It can be challenging as a driver because it's all about track position, but that's just part of it. It really didn't take me a whole lot of laps to get used to it.”
On his experience driving for JR Motorsports so far this season: “I'm having a blast. It's a lot of fun to go to the track with the guys every race. I've learned so much from them – they're so smart about race cars. I learn a billion things everytime I go down there. It's only going to help me in my racing career.
“It's been good going down there and racing against guys have been racing there weekly since the start of season, guys like (Lee) Pulliam, (Tommy) Lemons, Deac McCaskill – there are five recent track champions all in the field at the same time every week. Some of the guys we're racing against have been racing there since before I was born, so it's definitely a challenge.”
