“They don’t call it the ‘Tricky Triangle’ for nothing. It’s tricky, but I say tricks are for kids. I don’t think it will be that big of an issue in the race. I am really confident in our truck and what we brought today. Struggled a little bit in the mock run, but I feel like I took to the track pretty fast. We were able to get to work on the truck pretty quick. I am pretty proud of my team and the setup that they brought. I don’t think we were as good as we were in Kentucky, but this track is so hard because you have three different types of tracks in one track. Turn one has a lot of banking, and you are going 180 (mph) down the straightaway. Turn three you have a lot less banking, but you are going 150 (mph) down the straightaway. Then the dogleg is another animal all its own. Lot of different characteristics with this track, but it has been a lot of fun thus far.”
Tundra Playoff driver Tyler Ankrum was made available to media at ISM Raceway:
