No. 34 Love’s Travel Stops Ford Mustang Dark Horse:


“Looking ahead to this weekend at Las Vegas and with this group, I’m confident that we can get a top-10 at this track and keep building momentum. We had a really fast car at Atlanta, and we feel that our Ford Mustang Dark Horse has been solid. There isn’t doubt that we’re going to have speed and make the best race calls. So, yeah, I feel good heading into Las Vegas and getting another solid result.”


“This weekend at Las Vegas will be a real test for how our season is going to look. Coming off back-to-back speedway style races we’ve had a lot of speed and hopefully that translates to this weekend. I’m excited to get the new Dark Horse Mustang on a mile and half track and see what we can do, hoping for big gains from how we ran on intermediate tracks last year.”

“Vegas is a fast and fairly rough race track so hopefully we have hit the setup right and can allow Michael to search around the track and find the speed and grip we need for another day running up front.”
