“Talladega is our best track, and I’m looking to put Dover behind us and start the month of October off on the right foot. It’s always tough when you have a lot of long green flag runs at a track like Dover. We’re really looking forward to Talladega though.”

“ We’ve had some tough races the last few weeks. We’ve had a few races in a row where the caution flag just fell at the wrong time and we lost laps because of it. I really like racing at Talladega, and I am looking for a good run to get us back on track this weekend.”
