Ansell ActivArmr® 150 Preview
ARCA RACING SERIES - RACE 12 OF 20- Chicagoland Speedway
TRACK FACTS: Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill., is a $130 million, 1.5-mile, D-shaped, tri-oval speedway that annually hosts the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards. Chicagoland Speedway sits on 930 acres of land, which is large enough to accommodate 42 United Centers (home of the Chicago Bulls and Blackhawks).
JARED ON NEW TRACK/NEW CAR: “This is my first actual 1.5 mile track, last month I raced Pocono and Michigan and they are different from Chicagoland Speedway. Last year I came here with the team and they had their best finish with Maryeve Dufault behind the wheel. Hopefully we can use some of what we learned last year and use again this year on our new car. I know my guys will unload a fast car for me, we just have to be there at the end.”
TEAM TMR AT CHICAGOLAND SPEEDWAY: Chicagoland Speedway landed Team TMR it first top 10 speedway racein 2011. Bringing a new chassis to the track this weekend will be interesting enough for their rookie driver; this will also be the first appearance for Jared on this very fast 1.5 mile track. Jared is always up for a challenge and has the confidence that his crew chief Wayne Carroll and crew give him a great car each week.
