Jeremy Mayfield on NHIS…“It was hard not to be at the racetrack last week in Sonoma, but it was good that the team made the race and had a chance to work together and get some more track time. Butch [Leitzinger] did a nice job for the team. I was certainly happy to see that they had made the show and came out of there with a decent finish, but I’m happy to get back in the seat for Loudon. This team is making progress – both Cup teams are getting better every week. Our 360 OTC team has a long way to go, but we’re chipping away at it. [Crew chief] David Hyder is working really, really hard to get things turned around, so we’ll keep plugging away at it until we get it right.”
