You have two ninth-place finishes at NHMS. What do you need to do this weekend to improve upon those finishes?
“New Hampshire is a technical track and I feel like it hasn’t been one of my favorite tracks lately. I was able to win my first Truck Series race there in 2014, but since then it hasn’t been too great. They have been putting the traction compound down recently, so we just need to be able to get our car good through that, which we were able to do in Kentucky, so hopefully it transfers over to this weekend and we can be a contender for the win.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
