“I had a lot of fun out there today. It was a lot of learning for me. I’m not sure what else I could’ve done to be able to bring home the win. I left everything I had out there. It was a lot of fun working with our GMS teammates as well as some of the other Chevys. We were able to go out there and lead some laps and help out in the draft. We’ll just keep digging and hope we get that first win soon. On to Martinsville in a few weeks.”

“I would love to see the replay of what NASCAR saw between me and the 52. I was doing a really good job of staying a couple inches off of him and as soon as I hit him I would tap the break and pull off. It would stay in the air pocket though. It was unfortunate but thankfully both of us were able to bounce back. Our CMR Roofing Chevy Silverado was extremely fast today, all three of our GMS trucks were. We didn’t qualify where we wanted to, but they sucked up and raced really really well. I personally think we were ruining their show so they went out and called us on it, but I would need to see it on film to be sure.”
