Brad Keselowski Racing NCWTS Preview: Phoenix Raceway
Keys to the Race:
Unique track design at Phoenix features banking in Turns 1 and 2 while Turns 3 and 4 are much flatter
Steeper banking gives drivers more options
Truck must turn well in the flat corners
Minimal tire falloff means track position is critical
Difficult to make passes and go forward if you get stuck in traffic
Keep Your Cool: radiators and oil coolers work differently due to minimal humidity
Best time to pass is on restarts, so expect drivers to be aggressive
Drivers must make good decisions and put themselves in best position to make a pass

No. 29 Checkered Flag Foundation/Fisher House Ford F-150
Chase Briscoe’s No. 29 Ford F-150 will carry the colors of Brad Keselowski’s Checkered Flag Foundation in honor of Veterans Day. The truck’s bed cover will feature a list of 164 veterans nominated by their friends and family to thank them for their military service. The same 164 veterans will also ride on Brad Keselowski’s No. 2 Miller Lite Ford Fusion in Sunday’s Cup Series race.
Fisher House Foundation will be featured on the truck’s hood. Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment.
Friday night will be Briscoe’s first NCWTS race at Phoenix Raceway.
The No. 29 team will unload “Goose,” the same chassis that Briscoe nearly drove to victory at Iowa Speedway earlier this year.
Chase Briscoe: “As Phoenix comes closer, it’s crazy to think how fast this season has gone. It has been a blast with everyone on this team, and hopefully we can go out strong. Phoenix is a track where it’s really hard to pass. Hopefully, since we don’t need stage points, we can use that to our advantage and stay on top of track position. I feel really privileged to be running the Checkered Flag Foundation and Fisher House on our truck for Veterans Day weekend. We’ve got the names of 164 veterans on our truck bed. I would love to get a win to recognize those veterans and everyone else who has served this country.”
