After Spencer Davis Motorsports (SDM) stayed inactive in the last two races of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) at Charlotte (NC) Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway, respectively, Spencer Davis Motorsports (SDM) returns with driver Spencer Davis back to Rackley Roofing 200 in Nashville on Friday night (Tenn.) Superspeedway.
Sitting on the sidelines wasn’t an easy decision, but personal matters away from the track have kept the family team from racing for the past three weeks.
However, the brief sabbatical also allowed the Mooresville, NC-based team to delve into their gear and inspect it with a fine comb, in hopes that their hard work would result in the much anticipated return to trucks on the swift 1,333- Mile Superspeedway will pay off.
“We’re excited to be back in Nashville this weekend,” said Spencer Davis. âAs we mentioned with Charlotte, we had a private family matter to deal with. Luckily we are over and we are concentrating forward, starting with Nashville on Friday evening. ”
Davis, 22, has never been to the Nashville Superspeedway, but will be joined by much of the Truck Series field, which has not completed a single lap of the Lebanon, Tennessee track.
The native of Dawsonville, Georgia believes the field’s inexperience at the concrete plant will pay off for both drivers and fans on Friday.
“They think of Nashville a bit like COTA,” added Davis. âI think all but five drivers entered for this weekend have participated in previous races in Nashville, and even those who have raced in Nashville haven’t done so in almost a decade, so I guess that the requirements should at least be balanced for the training.
âWe need strong training with our No. 11 INOX Lubricants Toyota. During practice and qualifying it gets extremely hot during the day and cools down significantly when the sun goes down for the race. It should also be a great race for the fans.
âMy last race was Darlington and that seems like ages ago, so I just want to get into a good position and work at a constant pace for qualifying. It’s one of the biggest fields of the season and we have to qualify – so there’s that pressure too. ”
Davis didn’t hide from the fact that he expects to deliver in volatile circumstances.
“I have to drive this lap in qualifying, but I’m used to being put in that position,” said Davis. “My boys built a great truck for Nashville and I’m confident we can go out there and perform from start to finish.”
In February, SDM announced that INOX Supreme Lubricants would be the team’s lead partner for this season.
The INOX product range was first launched in 1989 with the original INOX MX3 lubricant. The original MX3 product had been in development for two years with testing and a focus on developing the right product for the market before it was released.
The INOX product range continues to grow with 12 products on the market, each with its own many special qualities that are used in a wide variety of industries. All of their products are tested and tested before they hit the market to ensure the best quality is maintained on behalf of INOX. INOX products are available in all major industrial, electrical, automotive, hardware, warehouse and mining, marine, fishing and fishing stores, as well as in many other locations.
A wholly owned Australian company, Candan Industries now exports to over 25 countries including the United States, Canada, France, South Africa, New Zealand, Indonesia and Malaysia.
“I’m delighted that a long-standing friendship is turning into a long-term partnership with INOX Supreme Lubricants,” said Davis. âI can’t thank Angel and James at INOX enough for their continued support and partnership with our small team, working through all the positives and negatives of a racing season.
âWe use their products every day in our racing team and in our machines in our shop. A quality product and great people helped bring it all together. ”
22-year-old Davis, who arrives in Nashville, has earned 27 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts with a career record of seventh at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February 2018, with further top 10 finishes on the Texas Motor Speedway (June). 2018) and Kentucky Speedway (July 2019).
