QUOTES
 
 
“I’ve never raced at Nashville before, just like Darlington earlier this season where we scored a top-10, so I’m up for the challenge. Sam Hunt Racing has had a lot of success in its starts at Nashville, and with a little sim time, we’ll be ready to tackle it. I like our chances this weekend. Let’s CRUSH it.”
