Grant Enfinger Quote:
On his first race with GMS Racing at MIS:

This will be my first time running at Michigan (International Speedway) with GMS Racing. I am confident that they will provide me with the very best equipment and chassis as they have done all season. We have had two strong top five finishes at New Jersey (Motorsports Park) and at Pocono (Raceway) I hope to keep the momentum going this weekend at MIS. Thank you to all of my partners for making this season possible for me.
