What is your outlook heading into this weekend’s race at Bristol Motor Speedway?
“Bristol is a track where I’ve had a lot of good results in the past. We’ve run well so far this year, other than a parts failure last weekend, but we’re still getting established as a team. Every week is a new page in the notebook for us and I’m looking forward to getting on the track Friday and seeing exactly where we are speed-wise, how the car feels and all of that.”
