“I’m ready to get back on the track at Kansas and get some positive results. We’ve been fast all three races so far this year, but we haven’t been able to put a whole race together at the same time. I can’t wait to get back in the Haas Automation Chevy Silverado and see if we can put everything together for a good finish. We know we have the performance; we just have to make it all work together to get a top-five or top-10 finish.”
