We have a great car for the race I appreciate Gary (Showalter, Key Motorsports crew chief) and
everybody at the shop working so hard on it.”

“Having the weekend off from the track gave us some extra time at the shop,” offered Showalter. “This is good car we are taking to Michigan it’s one we have done well with. Charles likes the car and he has a lot of determination to do well so we should be in good shape. We want to thank PRECISIONWERX for being on board with us this weekend
