From the Cockpit:
Brandon Jones: “We are leaving Homestead-Miami Speedway after posting two very strong finishes, an eighth and a second. In both races we were there at the end fighting for the win. Now it’s time to focus on Talladega, a track where I have been so close in the past, and I know we will be in contention to run really well there. The Superspeedway is the longest oval on the circuit with steep banking and a unique location for the start/finish line near Turn 1. I will be watching previous races and working with my teammates to prepare for the drafting and wild scenarios Talladega can bring. We have Menards/Atlas on board this weekend, so it would be great to get a good finish for them. It will be different this time with no drafting practice, but I’m sure Harrison (Burton), Riley (Herbst) and I will trust each other and stick together if we can. When it comes down to the end of the race, all bets are off. All of us will have to go for the win and I’ll also be racing for the Dash4Cash this weekend.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
