From the Cockpit:
Brandon Jones: “We are coming off of a significant finish at Bristol Motor Speedway and our 19 team is really excited about heading to Atlanta. We have a lot of momentum going to my home track, Atlanta Motor Speedway. We will have Toyota Service Centers back on our Supra. Last year I was capable of competing for the win at Atlanta but ended up with a top five finish. With all the resources this year that I have been able to utilize; I have a lot of confidence that you will see us fighting for the lead again during the EchoPark 250. Atlanta Motor Speedway brings an old surface which makes saving tires a big part of the strategy. Our No. 19 Toyota Service Centers team has spent a lot of time over the off-season preparing for Atlanta; we probably put in a few hundred laps around the track using Toyota’s simulator. It’s a fun race and we have a little extra bonus this year, because we qualified for the Dash 4 Cash, giving us 100,000 more reasons to win this weekend. I think once we get our Supra dialed in after the first few laps we will be the team you’ll see in victory lane”.
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
