No. 48 team crew chief Chad Knaus on racing at Kansas
“I feel really good heading into Kansas. It’s one of our favorite tracks, it's fast and we’ve won there a few times. The mile-and-a-half tracks have really been the bread and butter for the No. 48 Lowe’s team. Moving forward, we are working on getting our race cars better for the Chase.”
