ON A ROLL: During the first four ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards events, Spencer Gallagher and the No. 23 Allegiant Travel Chevrolet team have recorded two top-five and three top-10 finishes. The consecutive top-five finishes came at Salem (Ind.) Speedway (second) and Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway (fifth).




GALLAGHER AT TOLEDO: Gallagher returns to Toledo (Ohio) Speedway for the third consecutive year in the ARCA Racing Series. Last season, Gallagher qualified in the 16th position, before a blown tire prematurely ended his day and relegated the No. 23 Chevrolet to a 26th-place finish.

What do you like about racing at Toledo Speedway?


I really like Toledo. Its a cool little place that almost resembles Mobile in that its a racy half-mile; a textbook short track. You have the standard one and a half racing lines and can use the apron to make passes. We have had a lot of bad luck there in the past but there is no reason my GMS Racing team cant go there and contend for the win.




How has the season gone so far?


Between Mobile, Salem, and Talladega, we are in the midst of a good little run here so far with a seventh, second, and fifth. We have continued to improve at every track we go back to compared to last season and thats really all you can ask for.




What are you focused on at this point of the season?


Our goal for this season is to top-five them to death, because when you top-five consistently, you just start winning. Its crazy how it works, but when you put yourself in position, sooner or later you will win. We arent focusing on getting to Victory Lane. We are focused on running great. When you do that, great things will happen.
