THOUGHTS FROM THE DRIVER: Ron Hornaday
What are your expectations going into Atlanta?
“I know that I don’t want to finish second. I have three second-place finishes at Atlanta. I won my very first race at Atlanta back in 2005 and have sat on the pole for three of those races, but haven’t found my way back to victory lane since. I am really looking forward to having Armour back with us this weekend. We have had success when we’ve raced with their colors on board, hopefully it will pay off this weekend.”
