After a month hiatus, Anthony Alfredo will return to the seat of the No. 15 as the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series heads to Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway. Alfredo will have a different look this weekend as Sim Seats will adorn the sides of his Tundra for the World of Westgate 200.
The 20-year-old Ridgefield, Conn. native has one previous start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway which occurred earlier this season. In his lone start at the 1.5-mile track, Alfredo started 14th and finished 18th. However, the result doesn’t show the impressive efforts of the No. 15 team. Alfredo was forced to rebound from several issues in the spring race, working himself inside the top-10 multiple times. A loose wheel ultimately relegated him to an 18th-place finish.
With six starts at 1.5-mile tracks this season, Alfredo has an average starting position of 14th and an average finish of 18th. His best finish of the season occurred at Charlotte Motor Speedway where he collected his first Truck Series top-10. Alfredo will have his regular team with him in Las Vegas with crew chief Chris Lawson and veteran Cup spotter Eddie D’Hondt.
The 134 lap World of Westgate 200 will be broadcast live on FS1 on Friday, Sept. 13 beginning at 8:30 p.m., ET.
Alfredo on Las Vegas: “I am really excited to head to Vegas since it is only the second track this year that I get to go to again for a second time. That helps us as a team because we already have a few notes from the first time we went there. We’ve also been improving every week, so we have some momentum to carry into the race. I’m also excited to have a new partner on board this weekend, Sim Seats Driving Simulators, and I’m determined to do my best to put them in Victory Lane. We’ve had some tough luck most of this year, so if it turns around anywhere it should be Las Vegas.”
