What are you looking to gain by competing in the Xfinity Series race this weekend?

“Daytona is such a special place and Speedweeks are a great time getting the new season underway. It’s a big race to have Pye-Barker on the car for one of, if not the biggest weekend of the year for the sport. I’m excited to get out there and have some fun. I’m looking forward to racing with everyone at JGR and getting to work with Tyler (Allen, crew chief) for the first time. It’s something I’m excited about, not only this week, but for my entire Xfinity schedule this year, so hopefully we can get it started off the right way on Saturday.”
