Post-Race Quote: “We didn’t have the speed we needed in our Champion Power Equipment Chevy today. It wasn’t for a lack of effort though. These GMS guys have given me a great truck at a lot of these races, but we just missed something here today. Before we had the damage we struggled a little bit. I feel like we always worked ourselves to about middle of the pack. Right there in the middle of the storm. In most of those instances we don’t have anywhere we could go. At one instance I went to the middle. I can’t remember who was underneath me. The No. 41 was on top. I was to his left rear tire and the No. 42 cooled down and the No. 41 went with him and I was there and I just darted and got into him. The No. 41 came down but I’m the one that’s stuck in the middle. I don’t know, I feel bad for those guys. Other than that I don’t know what we could’ve done differently. It’s just a struggle. Thank you to these GMS guys for fighting. I think a lot of these guys would’ve called it quits and I don’t know how many times we were on the D.V.P. clock but this thing is tore up from every angle. Thirteen is almost like a win. We know we got our work cut out for us when we go to Homestead. We know our mile-and-a-half package is great. We just got to have a great performance in the next few weeks at Miami. We’re still alive in this championship.

Post-Race Quote: “Decent day for us at Talladega. I learned a lot today, and made some good and bad decisions, but I feel like we made the most of getting spun out twice! Our Wendell Scott Foundation Chevrolet was fast, but it seemed like we just kept getting in some bad spots. I’m thankful to those guys, Chevrolet, and all the men and women on my No. 24 team. Ready to go take it to them at Homestead”.

FINISH: 6TH

POINTS: 18TH

Post-Race Quote: “We had a fast No. 43 Chevy Silverado today. Just had to play it smart and keep in mind what Josh Wise said – ‘Less is more.’ We picked our battles wisely and ran around the bottom for the most part. Tried to push where we could and stay committed. And hey, it worked out in the end where we finished in sixth. We needed just about two feet for it to have been my first top-five finish. But overall, we brought it home clean and got a good finish for all of our partners at KIX Country, LiftedTrucksForSale.com, and our GMS Racing team.”
