Perhaps Shane Gray, who had one of the stronger Pro Stockers in the second half of last season, could use a bit of change in 2015. After three consecutive second-round finishes to open the new campaign, he will be flying the Industrial Distribution Group (IDG) banner at the next national event, scheduled for Charlotte in less than two weeks.

The battle for the Automobile Club of Southern California Road to the Future Award continued in Gainesville with candidates John Hale (Funny Car) and Drew Skillman (Pro Stock) in attendance. Jenna Haddock (Top Fuel) and Jeff Isbell (Pro Stock) are also eligible, as is Funny Car rookie John Bojec, who is expected to make his 2015 debut in Charlotte. The prestigious award is determined by a vote of leading motorsports journalists.
