ANTHONY ALFREDO QUOTES:
What does it mean to you to be racing at Daytona International Speedway for the first time in your career this weekend?
“Every race is a blessing to me, especially competing at this level for an organization like Richard Childress Racing. With that being said, the first race I ever attended as a fan was the 2012 Daytona 500. To roll out onto the track as a competitor at one of NASCAR’s highest levels is an indescribable feeling. It’s also going to be crazy because my first lap will be the green flag since we still don’t have practice or qualifying. Regardless, I am very excited for the opportunity and our only goal is to go win the race in our No. 21 Pyro Putty Chevrolet Camaro.”
You and your team had a strong performance at Talladega Superspeedway earlier this season. What will it take to find victory lane at Daytona on Friday night?
“We’ve had extremely fast Chevrolet Camaros at just about everywhere we’ve been this year, but the superspeedways have historically been some of the best tracks for RCR. We definitely proved how fast we were at Talladega earlier this year when I was able to lead my first career laps in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. The biggest challenge is just going to be keeping our No. 21 Pyro Putty Chevrolet clean throughout the race and avoiding the big wrecks. If we can do that, I believe we can put ourselves in position at the end to bring home our first checkered flag.”
