The Charlotte ROVAL will be an awesome experience for everyone involved. NASCAR has done a great job keeping Xfinity Series drivers blind to the road course

Ryan Preece: “The Charlotte ROVAL will be an awesome experience for everyone involved. NASCAR has done a great job keeping Xfinity Series drivers blind to the road course, making it fair game for everyone come Thursday. I enjoy road course racing and want to make sure we put on a show for our Rheem guests this weekend. I feel that this weekend could be a good opportunity for us to gain ground in the Owner’s Championship points standings.”
