“Tonight was an awesome night. Thank you GMS, they gave me an awesome truck right off the hauler.I was worried tonight starting 30th, that I wouldn’t be able to get to the front. I was worried about not getting stage points, but I think we finished the first stage third and the second stage seventh and then ended up third overall behind Chase (Elliott) and Kyle (Busch). Congrats to Chase that’s cool for him and GMS Racing. I don’t know how much money is on the line, but I know it’s a good bit. To finish third to those two is hard to hang your head about, but those are two pretty good ones. Also huge shout out to La Paz Margarita Mix. They’ve been with me from the get go. I can’t thank them enough. Overall awesome night and we’ll get them at Atlanta.”
