LFR SHOP UPDATE
Following a fire at LFR’s Concord, NC shop last Friday morning, the team has temporarily relocated to Team Penske to prepare for the Sprint Showdown and Coca-Cola 600 races. The team expects to return to their shop after Charlotte. No one was injured in the fire, which damaged four race cars.

A location update will be announced if necessary. Applications for the camp are due by May 25 and can be found at www.lfr95.com/camp95. The camp will be held on Tuesday, June 16.
