SHELDON CREED QUOTES:
What are you hoping to get out of this weekend at Phoenix Raceway?
“I’m really just looking to close off the year on a good note. Not being in the final four racing for the championship in the Truck Series really sucks, but I’m excited for the opportunity to compete in the Xfinity Series race on Saturday. I want to learn as much as I can for next year. I haven’t raced in a Xfinity car since Daytona 2019, so it’s been a while. I have a lot to learn and figure out before next season, so hopefully this race will help set myself up in the best position possible.”
How difficult is it to make the transition from racing in the NASCAR Truck Series at Phoenix to racing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series the next day?
“I will probably have a better understanding after practice honestly. I would think being in the Xfinity car would actually make the truck feel better, with the Xfinity car having less downforce. Overall, I don’t think it will be too difficult. I have been going back and forth on the simulator between the truck and car, which is different than the real thing, but I think it will be a fun different.”
