“That’s awesome, every little bit helps us out,” said Ferrigno. “With what we’ve had to spend on the car this year is nowhere near sponsor money and winnings. We appreciate every extra bit of extra money we can get and thanks to Xtra Mart for giving us the opportunity to race for some extra money. I’m going out to win races because I like trophies. If the points work out in my favor at the end of the year, it’s an added bonus.
