Being home for a change tends to have that effect for the Earnhardt Ganassi Racing crew members with Kentucky roots.
Rainer, a Prestonsburg native, is the spotter for Jamie McMurray's No. 1 Chevy. His father and grandfather owned cars in Sprint Cup and ARCA, driven by such NASCAR greats as Buddy Baker and Bobby and Davey Allison.
Jacobs, who flew in Saturday for jackman duties on Juan Pablo Montoya's No. 42, was a defensive tackle for the University of Kentucky, earning two degrees and four letters.
Having seen the track evolve from a concept to being on NASCAR's premier circuit, the EGR teammates are more determined to succeed being in familiar surroundings on its biggest weekend.
