Quote:

“Obviously, it’s my first time at Darlington and the first time in a few years for the trucks so not really sure what to expect. We’ve had some time in the simulator thanks to Chevy and that does a good job of getting us prepared. I’m really excited about my throwback scheme, it’s a throwback to Jimmie Johnson’s trophy truck. We’ve both got really similar backgrounds and we’re from the same town so being able to have a throwback scheme to him this weekend is pretty cool. We’ll go out there and just be patient and see how things shake out and try to be around at the end to go for another win.”

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