Rette Jones Racing, New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Pre-Race Quotes: Grant Quinlan, driver of the No. 30 International Tool And Mold Ford Fusion:
On Columbus Motor Speedway Debut:
“We we’re ecstatic with our debut at Columbus Motor Speedway. Honestly, we set our expectations to have a good solid run and finish inside the top-10, but to run as well as we did came with a lot of hard work from Mark (Rette), Steven (Keller) and the whole Rette Jones Racing team. Hopefully, we can go to New Hampshire this weekend and have another good run.”
On New Hampshire Motor Speedway:
“In a sense we put a lot on ourselves with our second place finish at Columbus. We’d be disappointed if we can’t go to New Hampshire and have a duplicate finish, but we had to keep our objectives modest. This is a completely different track and the competition will be different, but I believe in Mark and the team. We’ll be fine.”

We spent a lot of time putting the No. 30 International Tool And Mold Ford Fusion together and Grant did a great job in his NASCAR K&N Pro Series East debut. We proved to the competition that we’re a force to be reckon with and we hope to continue that trend moving forward.”
On Outlook For New Hampshire Motor Speedway:
“It’s another big weekend for our team. This race wasn’t in our schedule, but after Columbus, we decided to go to New Hampshire. We’re keeping our goals realistic. If we can go to New Hampshire and run somewhat similar to what we did in Columbus, the race will be successful. Grant proved that he can drive and we’re looking forward to see what can put together moving forward.”
