Sound Clip – Bret Holmes:

Holmes on Shore Lunch 250 at Elko Speedway:

“This is my first time at Elko, and I am very excited to see what it has in store for us. We are going to hopefully turn a corner this weekend and start building some momentum. The past few weeks have been very frustrating for us, but this team is grinding it out, and we think we will finally have a good weekend in Minnesota.”

Holmes on early season slump:

“It has definitely been a frustrating start to the 2017 ARCA season. I feel like we finally have our cars handling well on the track, but we need to get some luck going our way. If you think about it, we have had some great runs going, and then something bad happens. We were wrecked at Salem and Talladega, and then we had two engines blow in Toledo. Growing pains are a thing with new teams, and we are no different. All we can do is continue to grind it out, and hopefully, some better finishes will come our way.”


The Highlight Reel:

• Another new track for Holmes -- This will be the first time Holmes has raced at Elko Speedway. The Minnesota short-track is known for its action-packed racing and will be an interesting twist on anything the Munford, AL native has seen in the past. The 3/8-mile asphalt track was opened in 1965 and has hosted the ARCA Racing Series since 2012. Elko is the shortest track the series currently races on.

• Shore Lunch 250 Info -- Practice will be Saturday, June 3 from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. General Tire Pole Qualifying is at 5:00 p.m. The race is set to take the green flag shortly after 8. The event will be Live on MAVTV beginning at 8:00 p.m., while will stream live timing and scoring and chat throughout the day’s activities. All times are local (CT).
