NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Matt Tifft joined Koza in the Morning on Wednesday, August 8th, to talk about the upcoming Rock n Roll Tequila 170 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
Tifft, a Hinckley, Ohio native, drives the #2 Chevy Camaro for Richard Childress Racing, and will be driving a car that features the Cleveland Indians as a special paint scheme for sportswear company Fanatics.

Tifft has also had an interesting road to this point in his racing career. In 2016, while seeking treatment for a back injury, doctors discovered a benign tumor on his brain that required him to miss the rest of the season, and a silver dollar-sized portion of his brain to be removed.
