Blaine Perkins, driver of the No. 9 Raceline Chevrolet Silverado for CR7 Motorsports
On the Bristol Motor Speedway
“I am excited to get to the Bristol Motor Speedway. This weekend will be my first time at the Bristol Motor Speedway, and my first-time racing in NASCAR national series competition or a stock car on dirt. While I do not have much dirt racing experience, I am looking forward to the challenge of hustling our No. 9 Raceline Chevrolet Silverado around the track on the dirt.
“The dirt races have been synonymous with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series calendar over the past few years and always seem to be a fan-favorite event. So, I am excited to learn all I can throughout practice and during the qualifying heat races to be able to put it all together for Saturday night.”
