“There’s nothing better than coming off a win. Talladega is such an adrenaline-filled race, I’m just hoping to make it to end without any bad luck. I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with Alpinestars and Claw Money, especially considering we are raising awareness for breast cancer. I’m also excited about the fact that fans can play a role by participating in our auction of the truck hood of and the other items, with all proceeds going to charity.
