    QUOTES

    “I’m looking forward to returning to Michigan in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, especially with Sam and the team. I’ve had decent success there, and I look forward to building on the strong runs that SHR and I have had together this year. The guys have worked hard to put together a fast Stillhouse GR Supra.”
    John Hunter Nemechek, Driver of the No. 26 Stillhouse Toyota GR Supra
    “Looking forward to Michigan this weekend with John Hunter and it’s always good to be back in Stillhouse colors. JH always performs well in our No. 26 machine. I think Michigan will be a good opportunity to see where we stack up and where we can improve on faster, high-downforce tracks. The challenge will be tall but our guys are working hard to bring our best effort this weekend.”
    — Sam Hunt, Owner of Sam Hunt Racing
