Lofton Hoping For Another Milestone in Michigan
Last race review: Justin Lofton and the No. 6 CollegeComplete.com(http://www.collegecomplete.com) team overcame the challenges of the "Tricky Triangle" that is Pocono Raceway during the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS)' last event on August 6. Lofton started the event from the 21st position, but shortly after beginning his climb through the field he suffered damage to the right front fender after the field bunched up following a restart. Laps later, the field fell under a red flag period after rain moved into the area. The race was delayed until the next morning. Once the racing resumed, the No. 6 team got to work and repaired the damage to the right front. From that point on, Lofton rallied, regained a one lap deficit, and finished a respectable 16th.
Lofton at Michigan: The two-mile Michigan International Speedway is a special place to 25-year-old Lofton. While driving for Eddie Sharp Racing within the ARCA Racing Series in 2008, he claimed his first career stock car win at Michigan after starting on the outside pole. The win came after just eight series starts and two months of competing within ARCA. Yet another milestone in his career came at MIS in 2009, when Lofton made his NASCAR debut within the Nationwide Series. He qualified 19th for the race, and finished a solid 16th. Last season marked Lofton's first NCWTS start at MIS. He qualified for and finished the event 18th.
Off week entertaining: With the break in competition last week, Lofton used the time to focus on his production company Weekend Warriors Entertainment. Lofton, along with business partner and director Brett Bortle, flew to Illinois to shoot video for country act Jason Michael Carroll. Weekend Warriors Entertainment shot the video for production of a promotional video for the singer.
Truck information: Lofton will race chassis ESR076. He last raced the truck a month ago in Iowa, where he started ninth and finished 12th.
Lofton on Michigan Intl Speedway: "I really like Michigan and always enjoy racing there. It's a special place to me after winning my first stock car race there. It's a fun track to drive because it's wide and fast."
