    Last race: Joe Towianski survived the carnage at Coca Cola to secure his first victory in the SRD Cup Series.
    This week: The series returns to Charlotte, a hometown track for many teams. John Hooper won here in a nailbiter two years ago, edging out Dan Asher in a thrilling last lap pass. Anything is possible here in Carolina.

    Harris to the Charlotte Observer:

    "I love Charlotte. We have been successful here in my past racing in the SRD tiers and outside of them. Right now, we are P18 in the points. I'm not too sure if being in the top 16 would possibly get us a chase spot, but we need to get our butts in gear in order to lock ourselves in.

    We have been varying in race speeds, with being wicked fast one or two races and then the next one or two, we were horrendous. For practices, that's where I've found our speed to be, and we just need to fix whatever we are doing for qualifying and the race.

    So yeah, hopefully we are able to get a good enough finish to gain a few points places, as we are 9 points away from the top 16, and 78 from 1st place."

    Will Anderson - #81 Once Upon A Time In 2Fort Ford Fusion: "Not the greatest of qualifying efforts earlier today, but we spent most of our practice time this week working on race setups so we were not expecting to have the fastest car for qualifying. Our #81 Once Upon A Time In 2Fort Ford Fusion handles pretty well in the turns and isn't too bad around other cars in traffic, so we will have to see just how well the race turns out for us. My two teammates (DesRoisers and English) have been giving me some helpful advise about corner entry and which grooves will work the best depending on the weather conditions, so hopefully I can apply everything they have been helping me with and have a solid run. As an organization this weekend, we have been somewhat down on overall speed *points to Qualifying results* but our cars should be competitive in the race."

    SRD Cup Series Reporter: How disappointing was it not to qualify for the main event of the 2017 SRD Cup Series All-Star Race at Eldora Raceway several weeks ago after having a decent run in the first segment of the Last Chance Qualifying race?

    Will Anderson: "It was a real shame for our team. We had a solid run for the first segment and was running as high as second before we ended up running into some issues with the car. Made minor contact with the wall, ended up getting overly rattled by my mistake, and it ended up making me push too hard trying to regain lost ground, which dropped us down the running order. Our finish was very disappointing, but considering that it was my first-ever race on a dirt track as a rookie, it could have been worse. At least we didn't destroy the car but sadly we did not have the result that I personally felt that we should have had."

    Well, we need to do some work on the Busch Light Camry. I think we've got something in race trim. We were just too tight in Q.

    DeCosta was spotted picking up the jack, and throwing it at his crew.

    It's been a rough few weeks for him, but all things considered, at least he didn't pick up the jackman.

    Baby steps.

    "P21, not where we want to start. Gotta really tweak this thing when it comes time for the race. 23rd and 34th is pretty bad for our Harris Motorsports organization here at Charlotte. We have a lot of work to do at this HMS stable."
