“I think with the extra laps that will give us some extra time to get up in the top-5,” said Ronnie Williams, driver of the #59 Advice One Chevrolet. “Sometimes you need those extra laps and it’s always nice when Xtra Mart pitches in and we have some extra money to race for. We’re still looking for our first win of the year. We haven’t had a bad season but we’re definitely hungry for a win and with extra money getting thrown at us, it’s a perfect opportunity for us. Last year with only two extra laps we went from fourth to first so with five extra laps you never know what could happen.”
“Xtra Mart has been involved with Stafford for many, many years and it’s great that they’re still involved,” said Ted Christopher, driver of the #13 Sterling Security/Al-Lee Installations Chevrolet. “Extra money is always good in this game because we all know how expensive it can get.”
