Quote:

“We had good momentum through the test at New Smyrna and I feel confident going back. The test was my first look at the track, I’ve never raced there before so it’ll be fun. I’m excited to get to work with everyone at GMS and Chevrolet, we’re kicking it off with two races in one week so it’s going to be hard work. Short track racing is where I came from so being able to get acclimated to a new team with a style of racing that I’m familiar with is a confidence boost. Hopefully we’re in victory lane on Monday night.”
