Natalie Decker will start 21st Friday night’s Gander Outdoors Truck Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Decker, 21, and most of the other truck series teams see Charlotte as a home track since their race shops are so close to the speedway.
“I’m really excited to race at Charlotte on Friday. There seems to be a lot of excitement around this weekend because it’s a home race for everyone.” says Decker, “We tested there a few months ago, and I’ve been working on the simulator to help prepare.”
The 21-year-old Wisconsin native is coming off a 25th place finish at Kansas and seeking to improve upon her best finish of 13th at Las Vegas.
“My goal for the race is to get a good qualifying lap in, finish all the laps in the race and learn as much as possible. My DGR-Crosley team and I are hoping to get our best finish of the season this weekend in Charlotte.”
