Cale Conley Quotes:
“Las Vegas Motor Speedway is another first-time track for me. I traveled out there last year to watch the race and the energy from the fans and in the garage is really cool. I feel more comfortable this weekend now that we have one mile-and-a-half track under our belt and Vegas tends to be a bit more forgiving than Atlanta on tires. I am also excited to expand my relationship with the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. It’s great to have them on the hood of my Camry this weekend to help spread the word about their cause which is really close to my heart.”
