During the Charlotte Truck race, Dye faced a frustrating situation. Unfortunately, he suffered a stuck throttle on his qualifying lap, which prevented him from completing a lap and securing a better starting position. Despite this setback, Dye’s performance has been impressive, and he remains optimistic about his future in the series.

As for the conversation with Conner Jones, Dye expressed his concerns. He believes that Jones has been influenced by too many Dale Earnhardt YouTube videos, leading to a reckless racing style. Dye also hinted that Matt Crafton, a seasoned driver, will address Jones’s behavior when he leaves ThorSport Racing. Dye’s frustration stems from what he perceives as a lack of respect on the track, and he hopes that Jones will learn from this experience.
