“I can’t wait to get back in the 63 truck,” says Jennings.  “In my previous race there, we came home 16th.  We’ve put a lot of effort into getting this truck ready for the UNOH 200, so I’m really looking forward to Wednesday night.”

Wednesday’s race marks crew chief Trip Bruce’s one year anniversary with the team.  “Trip is an all around good guy,” notes team owner Mike Mittler.  “He’s very knowledgeable of the race truck, how to set it up and what kind of adjustments it needs.  He can communicate that information very well and he has the respect of everyone on the team.  Trip has been a huge asset for us. ”

“I’ve really enjoyed working with Mike and the team this past year,” states Bruce.  “These guys are hard working, dedicated racers.  Together, we have been able to improve our consistency and bring home better finishes.  And we have fun at the track.  It doesn’t get better than that.”
