Currey on Friday’s Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway: “I’m excited to be back in the Unishippers Silverado this weekend with Niece Motorsports. In my first start this year at Atlanta, we finished fourth, so I’m looking forward to building on our finish there and to get some more laps under my belt.”
