Kris Wright Pre-Race Quote:

On Las Vegas: “I’m looking forward to heading back to Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend.

“I’m going to Las Vegas determined. We have had good speed in our Trucks the last two races, just don’t have the results to show for it. Hopefully, we can change that on Friday night.”
