From the Cockpit:
“I can’t wait to get back to Darlington and race on Saturday afternoon. That track is such a special place, and it’s really cool to be able to race there. I’m really excited to be able to honor my dad with our special DEX Imaging paint scheme this weekend. He played such a role in my life growing up, and to be able to run the same paint scheme that he ran back in 2002 at Darlington is really cool. I cannot thank DEX enough for all of their support through this. Hopefully, we can go out, put on a show like my dad did back in 2002, and get this special DEX Imaging paint scheme in victory lane where it belongs!”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
