Quote:

“I’m excited to get to Kentucky. I had a good run here in 2017 in ARCA and our intermediate program has been solid all year so I expect that to continue this week. This truck is one of my favorites we’ve had all year, it ran up front at Dover and we were able to put together a solid finish with it in Iowa and Vegas. The pressure is on to make the playoffs and the best way to make that happen is to go out there and win and we’re going to try to make that happen in Kentucky.”

Quote:

“I’m looking forward to getting back behind the wheel this weekend in Kentucky. The week off was nice, I took some time to play golf and enjoy time out on the lake and it was a great way to celebrate our win in Chicago but now it’s time to get back to business. Historically speaking, Kentucky hasn’t been my best track, but Jerry (Baxter, crew chief) has three top fives there and I trust him and my entire team to give me a fast Silverado capable of running up front.”
