“I was just a little tight there, but we had a really good truck other than that. Air is so difficult here, we saw that when I was leading there in front of the 16 and he couldn’t get around me. I didn’t know what they were going to do and I had a huge run going down the backstretch. I knew if I stayed behind the 51 I was going to get tight and found the hole and it stuck. Man, I gave it away honestly. I gave Jones the top on the front straight away and that’s where the race was won. I should’ve stayed on top and let him get next to me. Hats off to my guys, we’ve been struggling honestly. I’ve been working so hard with Josh Wise and I was starting to think it’s me, maybe something I’m doing wrong. We finally had a really good truck today and I was able to race how I wanted. I could be really agressive and put it wherever I wanted, which was really nice. Just want to thank Chevy Accessories, GMS, all my guys, my family back home. Just thank you to everyone, it feels good to be running good.”

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