Joe Graf Jr. Quoteboard:
On Las Vegas Motor Speedway: “I am excited to return to Las Vegas Motor Speedway flying the G-Coin® colors this weekend. In the spring, I competed for Joe Gibbs Racing and utilized their resources to help with my craft on the track.
“Las Vegas is a high-speed mile-and-a-half track where speed and finesse are essential. There is plenty of room to race, and restarts are super critical. Sometimes, strategy comes into play there, too, so we need to be prepared for that.
“I look forward to applying what I learned in March with my RSS Racing with Lefcourt Brothers team on Saturday afternoon. We’ve had a couple of rough races at Texas Motor Speedway and the Charlotte ROVAL, so I’d like nothing more than to go to Las Vegas and have a strong finish before handing the wheel off for Homestead and returning for the season’s final two races.”
On The 2023 Season: “The end of the season is on the horizon, and I am working hard between my responsibilities with RSS Racing with Lefcourt Brothers Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing to ensure I can give 100 percent behind the wheel.
“I want to make the most of this last month and deliver strong results.
“I just need to stay focused, communicate with my team, and utilize the knowledge I’ve gained over the past three years to recover and end the season on a high.”
