Gary Klutt on Racing at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park: “This has been my favorite race weekend of the year, since the Truck Series started coming up and running here,” said Klutt. “The trucks have taken a couple of outings for me to really get the hang of, the differences being, radial tires, truck arm suspension, and better aero. These trucks feel quite a bit different than our Pinty’s cars, so I’m anxious to get out for the first practice session and get up to speed. I’m excited to be working with Niece Motorsports and crew chief Kevin Eagle. I think that we have a good shot at this race. I feel that as I mature, I just keep learning this track and how to extract speed from it. I think that really showed this spring here at CTMP.”

Everyone at Niece Motorsports has been working extra hard on this truck and I’m excited to get to be the one behind the wheel. We had a great race last week in Martinsville, and I feel strongly that we will run up front again this week in Al Niece’s back yard.”

NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series star Todd Gilliland visited Phillis Wheatley Elementary School in Bridgeville, Delaware, today to help announce the winner of Dover International Speedway’s fourth annual Monster Mile Youth Nation Design Challenge.
“That was a big confidence boost for me. To go out there and run up front with the 18 team was a lot of fun for me to go out and race the Xfinity Series guys, like (Justin) Allgaier. We were racing side-by-side for most of the day. It was a lot of fun. We had a good time out there. I am excited to get back out there with them in New Hampshire, but right now I am focused on the Truck Series.”
