No. 00 OneMain Financial Chevrolet

“We have had really fast Trucks this season, and that was true at Talladega last week. Even with the right-side damage we had, we were fast, and we had a shot to win there. Martinsville has been good for me, with a pole last year and a bunch of laps led, but we need to make it to the end. We were pretty good there in the spring before getting crashed, and I am looking for a great weekend in our OneMain Financial Chevrolet.”
