Ross Chastain on Racing at Kentucky: “I’m looking forward to getting this No. 45 Niece Motorsports Chevrolet back on track,” said Chastain. “It’s been a good month, and I’m looking to keep that momentum going this weekend in Kentucky. We’re working hard to get into the top-20 in points and trying to win some more races before the playoffs start.”
Making the Playoffs: A solid performance at Chicagoland Speedway moved Chastain into 24th-place in the NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series (NGOTS) point standings, just 10 points outside of the top-20.
Chastain has two victories this season, with one counting towards playoff eligibility. Chastain must move into the top-20 in NGOTS point standings within the next four races in order to be eligible to compete for the championship.
Chastain at Kentucky: Chastain has four NGOTS starts at Kentucky Speedway, with his most recent coming in 2017.
In addition, Chastain has eight NASCAR XFINITY Series starts at the 1.5-mile track, with six top-20 finishes.
The Alva, Florida native also has one Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series start to his credit at Kentucky Speedway, which came last season.
