“It was a solid day today. We just didn’t have the handle on the car we wanted. At least we look really good in the championship standings, and we can go to Dover with our heads high saying we have a great shot to win and take home the championship.”I really can’t thank GMS Racing and Chevrolet enough for their hard work this year to get me in this position. I’ll take a top five any day, especially with some of the struggles we had this weekend. Now it’s time to focus on Dover!”
