Buckle Up In Your Truck 225 Pole Sitter – Grant Enfinger

Grant Enfinger

Thor sport Racing has been a leading force in the Gander Outdoors truck Series in 2019, and once again, they will lead the field to green. This Time, it will be Grant Enfinger in the No. 98 Champion Power Equipment Ford F-150. Enfinger has a best finish of 2nd this season and looking for his first win since September of 2018 at Las Vegas. Enfinger said, even though he’s sitting on the pole, he doesn’t believe this is his best opportunity for a win. “I feel like we’ve had three or four good opportunities for a win, but they’ve just slipped through our fingers.

Traction Compound

Enfinger was one of only a couple of drivers that was able to negotiate the bottom lanes of turns one and two. Drivers seemed to struggle with loose trucks on the botton as the PJ1 traction compound has been applied at kentucky. Enfinger was asked about the PJ1 getting activated and how the trucks are handling. “I believe the conditions are going to change this evening, and this PJ1 should get activated quickly.”

The warm temperatures throughout the afternoon at Kentucky speedway has made for very slick conditions and without much on track activity, it’s been a handful. In fact, some drivers had said it’s like driving on “snot”. Hopefully, no one is dealing with that, but as the trucks ran, and two Xfinity series practices have gone on prior to the Buckle Up In Your Truck 225. The PJ1 should give these truck series drivers plenty of options to pass.

So, as Grant Enfinger will lead the field to green alongside the young Sheldon Creed, Enfinger is confident in his Thor Sport Racing team, and even more confident that he’ll reach victory lane a couple times before we wave the checkers on the 2019 season.

With a fast truck and expected multiple lanes of race at Kentucky, Enfinger could finally see that first checkered flag tonight.

If it races, I'll write about it, talk about it or shoot it with a camera.

I began pursuing a career in motorsports journalism immediately after attending college at Kent State University. I have hosted multiple Motorsports talk shows, worked in Country Music radio, and now i spend every day on the air in the morning with 1300 and 100.9 WMVO and in the afternoons watching the roadways around Central Ohio for 93.7 WQIO.

The excitement and the fans make everything I put out there worth while, it's been an exciting 15 years having covered everything from the Daytona 500 to the Rolex 24 and you can find me at pretty much any event run at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

What I like to bring is a look behind the scenes, a look at what and who makes the sport grow. From the guy that welds pieces back at the shop to the host in the tv booth.

Everyone has a story and I like to tell it. My main focus here at TPF is looking at the men and women behind the microphone and cameras.

My life long goal is to become a member of MRN or PRN Radio and bring the races to you. I hope that what I share now is enjoyable and gives you a unique look in to the world of motorsports.

See you at a track soon
