Tayler Comments: On Road America “We were disappointed with the way things turned out at Road America. We had the G-OIL Toyota Camry up to 13th in the early going, but ran into trouble and lost three laps. The TriStar team did a good job getting us back out there and we salvaged what we could.”
On Kentucky “The mile and a half tracks are a big part of the NNS championship. We need to run well and get good finishes if we are going to be in the top-10 at the end of the season. We had a nice run in the G-OIL Toyota at Las Vegas (started 17th, finished 16th) and had a good run going at Texas until we lost the right front tire. I think that we are ready to put a whole race together and get a good finish.”
Rick Carpenter comments: “Tayler, Eddie Pardue and the G-OIL crew have been working really hard and we are starting to come up with a package that will help us take the next step. Kentucky could be the right place for that to happen.”
