I had the privilege of speaking with JTG Racing Rookie, Ryan Preece, yesterday to see what it's like coming back to New England for his first Cup Race this Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
He moved to North Carolina, so he is loving being back up here where it's a little cooler. Well, until tomorrow. This weekend is going to be brutally HOT, but Ryan is so excited to be racing in front of all of his friends and family this Sunday.
He also discusses his wife's birthday and the mindsets he has for the different lengths of tracks that he races.
Stay cool and hydrated this weekend, Ryan.
I will be watching and cheering you on!
You can catch the race on Sunday on KIX 100.9 with race coverage beginning at 2:00pm.
