Joe Graf Jr. Pre-Race Quote:
“I’m incredibly bummed that we won’t have the opportunity to race in front of the awesome NASCAR fans this weekend in Atlanta. However, I’m thankful we still have the chance to race and the opportunity to put on a thrilling event for all of those watching and listening.
“We haven’t had the best couple weeks for our Core Development Group | EAT SLEEP RACE, but it’s not because of the effort of my guys from the SS GreenLight Racing team – just rotten luck. Hopefully, we can change that on Saturday afternoon and look forward to Homestead.”
