From the Driver’s Seat:

Erik Jones: “Atlanta has been a good track for us in the past and I think we’ll have a good race this weekend in Atlanta. The track is old, worn out and slick and that makes for good racing. We’ve run well the last few weeks and I think we can continue that this weekend. I think Atlanta is a place where we should run well and have a shot to contend for our first win of the season.” 

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