“I really don’t know what to say. I can’t thank everyone behind me enough for all the support they’ve given. I just really appreciate all the opportunities I’ve had these last couple weeks to come out here and win races like this. We definitely had to work for this one, for sure. I’m so honored to have End Stigma. Change Lives. on the car this week. This is something that I personally feel associated with and I’m glad to have them on board and give them a win.

“I’m just so thankful for the opportunity I have and to win two championships in one year the year before I go Xfinity racing is pretty special. It just shows what this team is capable of and what I’ll be able to do in the future.”
