The North Wilkesboro All-Star race on Sunday will attract a lot of attention. Many predict an aggressive race with lots of 'sparks' Erik Jones will be one of the participants in the race, and he has huge ambitions before the start.
One thing worries Jones though; Considering the course of this season and the aggressiveness of the individuals, Jones expects that this time will be the same. “It’s always exciting to get the chance to participate in an All-Star race and to get to do it at a historic track like North Wilkesboro is even more special.
I took some advice from ‘The King’ as he said the track is so worn out it tire fall off will be high,” Erik Jones said. Erik is ready to give his best to win this interesting race. The winner of the race will receive a $1 million check.
“We hope to put on a good show for the fans of the No. 43. Richard (Petty) told me with this “Day Glo Red” I can’t hide from him – and with no points and a million bucks on the line, it’s going to be an aggressive race.
It would be historic to put this car in victory lane again so we are going to do everything we can to make that happen,” Erik Jones added.
The only way Noah Gragson can be part of this race is to win the open race or secure a spot via fans.
There is none more important for him than the fact that he is an optimist, and that he believes he will be able to be part of this spectacle. “I’ve been looking forward to the All-Star race weekend. The “Vote for Noah” fan vote campaign has been pretty fun and the fans have really gotten into it.
We’ve been handing out buttons and posting flyers everywhere. I hope to win the Open race and not need the vote, but either way, I want the No. 42 Sunseeker Resorts Chevrolet in the main event”. Gragson said.
