'When we heard about the NDRL and what they've put together, we were certainly intrigued,' Frye exclaimed. 'Then they announced that they'll be in Pennsylvania and we couldn't help but be excited about what was going on. As a regional team, we have to thank John Kennedy and the entire staff for bringing these types of shows to the table. It gives us an opportunity to race for some really good money and against the best drivers in the country. They're giving teams like ours a chance to see where we stack up against the best.'
