“I am beyond ready to get down to Daytona to get this season rolling. I’m thankful for this GMS Racing team, they have taken me under their wing and made the transition to a new organization really easy for me. I have ran at one plate-track in the Xfinity Series which was last year at Talladega and ended up finishing seventh. Besides running a few Truck Series races at Daytona this will be my first Xfinity event at the superspeedway. Patience and staying out of trouble is very important at plate-tracks. It’s all about who survives in the end. I know that I have a solid team behind me and top of the line equipment to be in contention every week, now I just need to execute on track and park this No. 23 Fire Alarm Systems Chevrolet in Victory Lane.”
