"I said my first win I couldn't beat it, but this does. The No. 3 Dow Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 team are Daytona 500 Champions! My Grandfather has done everything for me and to win on the 20th anniversary of Dale Earnhardt, Sr.'s win makes it all the more special. Everybody knows it. There is a lot of pressure on me to perform, but I like that pressure. It comes with driving the No. 3 car for Richard Childress Racing. There is a lot of pressure behind that. I'm willing to take that and go with it. I'm just thankful for all the people that support us along the way.  Thanks to Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and his family for letting us bring this number back. It comes full circle. I just can't thank the Lord enough for this opportunity. This one is for Dale Earnhardt, Sr. and all those Sr. fans.  I love you guys."

"Congratulations first of all to Austin (Dillon) and the No. 3 team. That is awesome for RCR and ECR and all of our partners. To get a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in Victory Lane right away, that was special as well. For the No. 31 Bass Pro Shops / Cabela's team, we just weren't in the right place at the right time and got caught up in a little bit of a mess, and that was it.  We just finished with a bunch of damage, but we still finished eighth."
