“We just came off an awesome top five run at my hometown track of Indianapolis Motor Speedway. This week we are in the final race of the regular season at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. We went there a few months back in the spring. We are going back there now with a lot of data and set up notes to try and get a little better run than we did last time. We are going to try and take what we learned in Vegas at the last race and apply it to this race and hopefully gain some really good momentum for the playoffs next week at Richmond.”
“We’re coming off a Top-10 finish at Kentucky after some damage, but we’re headed to Loudon – New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend. It’s another short track.

I haven’t been there in a few years, since the trucks don’t race there anymore"
