From the Driver’s Seat:

Harrison Burton: “I am really excited to head to New Hampshire Motor Speedway with the Joe Gibbs Racing guys. I haven’t been in the car since Iowa, where we had a really good run, and I am excited to build on that. Hopefully we can take our momentum from Iowa into New Hampshire. All of our short track races, which have been all of my races so far, have gone pretty well so hopefully we can build on that and have a good finish and maybe even a win.”  

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
