You’re coming off a win at Dover to a track that hasn’t treated you so well. What kind of mentality do you have going into this weekend after a strong run the last time you were on track?
“I think we need to go in the same way we have all year and that mentality is that we will have one of the cars to beat when we unload. All year we have had speed off the truck and that has shown in practice speeds along with our seven wins. If we keep our heads up at these tracks that haven’t been kind to us in the past, then our luck is sure to turn around at some point and our goal is for that to happen this weekend in Kansas. (Crew Chief) Mike Shiplett has a great track record here in the last three races as he won this race last year, along with finishing fifth (2016) and second (2017), so that will help our mindset as we head into this weekend.”
