Scott Heckert Quotes
Even though the season is just one race old, does the strong run in Florida carry over to this weekend? “Momentum is really big in this sport. We finished in the top five four of the last five races of 2014 and picked up two wins, so we went into New Smyrna with a lot of confidence and it showed. We know the car has speed so we have confidence we will be strong each track we go to.”
Greenville is a challenging track. What have you done to prepare yourself for this weekend’s race? “Greenville has never been my best track, so we’re going to try a few new things to see if we can improve. My entire HScott Motorsports with Justin Marks team is ready for this weekend and we are looking at putting the No. 34 Project Lifesaver Chevrolet up front.”
