“I am thrilled to be racing my No. 18 Rheem Toyota Camry at Bristol this weekend with $100,000 on the line. Short tracks are certainly in my wheel house, so beyond excited to get to Thunder Valley. I have won here in a Modified, so the hope is that I can get my fast Rheem Camry in victory lane.” - Ryan Preece
