QUOTES:

 

Ryan Repko – No. 20 Craftsman, Champion Power Equipment Toyota Camry

 

 “I’ve always wanted to race out West but haven’t had the opportunity until now. Kern County (Raceway Park) looks like an awesome facility from the videos I’ve seen and seems to always put on a good show. With it being my last start of the 2020 season, I’m looking forward to applying all the knowledge I’ve acquired since the beginning of the season and getting a strong result.” 

 

Mason Diaz – No. 25 Solid Rock, Mechanix Wear Toyota Camry

 

 “It’s going to be a fun weekend. The overall season did not go as everyone planned, but we’re going to these two West races with nothing to worry about except collecting the checkered flag. These are my last two races with Venturini Motorsports this season and I want to make sure we end on a high note.”
