“I can’t wait to get back into the No. 26 Black and Green Grass Machine. I haven’t been in the driver’s seat since July at Atlanta, and I’ve been itching to get back ever since. I know the Sam Hunt Racing guys have put together a fast piece for Bristol. I’ve had some good runs there in the past, and I think we can really execute this weekend. Huge thanks to ForeverLawn and all of our partners as we head into a big weekend.”

“Bristol has always been one of my favorite tracks, on the NASCAR circuit. I enjoyed the track as a driver and now I enjoy the racing and atmosphere as a team owner. Jeffrey has historically run strong at Bristol, and I know he is eager to turn in another high-caliber performance for us this weekend.”
