The Lowe’s Racing team has been preparing for this moment all season, utilizing their skills, talents and tools to accomplish their goal of obtaining the coveted #6pack. Each member of the team has played in intricate part in the Lowe’s Racing success, using their strengths and abilities to improve the No. 48 Lowe’s Chevy SS week in, week out.
