Andy Gregg has every right to experience such titanic sentiment, with the 2014 season having just started he's already had a view from all three tiers of the podium. Gregg opened his season at Silver Dollar Speedway where he made it to the Silver Cup finale campaigning for Russell Motorsports. Driving the K&N backed Mike's Hard Lemonade/Capitol Ace Hardware/Thompson's Auto No.14R sprint car, Gregg finished the contest in third, as he flawlessly navigated the tricky track surface.

"It is awesome to get out here and run up front to start our season off, but I was just beyond thrilled that we were even able to get out here and race," Gregg said. "The Russell family made some huge changes to their program for this season, and everyone involved on this team worked a ton of late nights to get us race-ready."

Next up was Gregg's debut of his personal Guts Racing No. 53 back at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, California. Gregg put on tremendous charge as he rallied from his seventh starting spot to finish second aboard his Miller Fortune/Poor's Equipment Repair/K&N backed entry.

"It was a pretty greasy track, and tough to pass on, but we were pretty good in the feature event, and I really have to thank my team," remarked Gregg.

Gregg and his Scott Russell team earned a commanding victory in their second outing together at Marysville Raceway Park.

Then, only one week after Gregg and his Scott Russell team burned the midnight oil to reach the Silver Cup podium, they returned to action at Marysville Raceway Park. This time however Gregg flat-out dominated the California Sprint Car Civil War Series presented by Flowmaster opening event, leading every lap in both the Dash and Feature Event.

"Winning the second night out in the Russell Motorsports No.14R car was epic," Gregg said. "During the off-season Russell Motorsports built a new car from the ground up, even the motor is new to the team. So to come out and get 3rd the first night and win the second night shows it was a wise decision. To top it off, between the 3rd and 1st in the No. 14R, we also picked up a 2nd place in my own No. 53 sprint car. So it's been great start for both teams."

Physically and mentally I feel more prepared for the 2014 season then I've ever felt in the past," he adds. "Our next race will be at Stockton Speedway in Stockton, California, this Friday March 21st."

In a follow-up we can report that Gregg remained hot, finishing with his fourth podium in a row at the FVP Shootout. With much of the top-five battling wheel-to-wheel, Gregg made a stirring pass that earned him a third place finish at the stripe.
