“I really enjoy racing at Salem,” Self stated. “Salem is a track where you have to save your equipment for the long runs. Last year we went 147 laps caution free so you have to have a lot of patience.”
“We have a lot of family and friends who always come to Salem when we race. I hope we can give them something to talk about Saturday night.”
