Clint on Daytona
“Getting to run Daytona is an awesome experience. Growing up a short track racer it has always been a dream to one day make it to this stage. It’s pretty crazy to think that day is almost here. Thankfully we got a day of testing in January. We had a good bit to work on and improve but I’m confident we will have a good race car based on all the things we learned at the test. You never know when you will get this opportunity again, so I am definitely looking forward to making the most of it.”
