“I’m excited to get back into an Xfinity car this weekend,
especially the teal and gold No. 8 (Martin Truex Jr.
Foundation / Sherry Strong) Catwalk for a Cause Chevrolet
with JR Motorsports. This team has had good runs the past
few weeks, so hopefully we can build on that. JRM has a
really good history at Phoenix, and it’s one of my favorite
tracks. I feel like I run well there and have had decent
success – I have confidence going into Saturday.”
TIL NEXT IME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
