NASCAR – MENCS – NASCAR America – Alan Gustafson

NASCAR America – Alan Gustafson interview – 6th April 2017

In the 1986 Clint Eastwood movie, “Heartbreak Ridge,” a classic line emerged from the script that fits this weekend’s racing action on the untested racing surface at Texas Motor Speedway.

Like the Marines in the movie that were looking to recapture Grenada, NASCAR drivers will have to “Improvise, adapt and overcome” to have success in Fort Worth.

In Thursday’s edition of NASCAR America, Alan Gustafson, Chase Elliott‘s crew chief, explained how his team plans to do that at Texas.
