From the Cockpit:

Harrison Burton:

How are you feeling with one race before Playoffs start?

“I think we’re really confident. We’ve had the speed recently, other than this (past) weekend, to win a lot of races and just haven’t executed. Then (last weekend) was a little bit of the opposite. We weren’t amazing, but we put things together at the end to have a chance to win the race, which was fun. That’s what it takes from a team is you have to make the best out of the days that aren’t the best car. That was really, really good for us to do that going into the Playoffs and now we’re going to Bristol where we have laps and we have experience as a team. I’ve been there twice with this team now. It’s time to go, time to get some Playoff points before the Playoffs start and then once we get going, we’re going to be locked in and ready to go.”
