From the Cockpit:
Brandon Jones: “I think we are as prepared as we can be for Talladega. We’ve been qualifying really well and if we can keep that up this weekend, that track position should help us stay out of trouble. Usually you just have to get lucky here, but last year we ran in the top 10 the majority of the day and came out with a second-place finish. We’re going to work really hard and be smart about the race this weekend to try to get the No. 19 Menards/Little Hug Toyota GR Supra in Victory Lane at Talladega.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
