You had a really strong weekend in the Spring at Bristol with a third place qualifying effort and fourth place finish. How much are you looking to forward to heading back there?
“Honestly, I am just excited to get back to an oval. I think we will have a really good Ford Performance Mustang this weekend. We really started coming on strong towards the end of the race in April, so I’m looking forward to getting back there and seeing if we can crack into the top three or maybe even snag a win.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
