Joe Graf Jr. Pre-Race Quote:
“The SS GreenLight Racing team has some momentum after a strong finish last weekend at Darlington. I had never been there before so to come out of Darlington with a lead lap, top-20 finish was a good boost for our team.
“I’ve never been to Charlotte Motor Speedway in a NASCAR Xfinity Series car, but thankfully I have two starts in ARCA which I think should be beneficial since it’s going to be another race without practice or qualifying.
“We just need to go to Charlotte on Monday and repeat what we did at Darlington. If we can do that, it will be another good race for us and we bring some exposure to our No. 08 Core Development Group | EAT SLEEP RACE Chevrolet Camaro.
“I can’t thank Bobby (Dotter), my crew chief Patrick (Donahue) and the rest of the SS GreenLight Racing guys enough for their hard work. Looking forward to Monday night and remembering all those in the Armed Forces on Memorial Day.”

The 37-car field will take the green flag shortly after 7:30 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1, the Performance Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).
