"It's a crazy day and I have so many thoughts in my head right now. I mean, it's been a rough road. It's been a rough journey in the Cup Series. These guys believe in me - Trackhouse Racing, Justin Marks, Ty Norris. Everyone that helped me to get to this point. A lot of people in Mexico - Jay Morales and Carlos Slim. My family, they never give up on me. A lot of people did, but they didn't. I'm just very happy we were able to make it work."

 

 

"I'm so happy for Daniel and his team. This is team Trackhouse all of the way. All of the people that put in the effort behind the scenes. Two fast cars and I couldn't be prouder of Daniel. I'm so happy for him."
