What are your thoughts as you head to New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the first time in the NASCAR XFINITY Series?

“I’m looking forward to going up north for the race this weekend. I’ve never raced at New Hampshire in the XFINITY Series before, but I have seat time there in both a truck and the K&N Series. It’s definitely a tricky track to wrap your head around. The track is so flat, but it has a lot of speed. You have to be aggressive to pass cars because there is really only one groove. I’m confident that we’ll have a great weekend in New Hampshire, even with it being my first NXS race there. RCR has had solid runs there in the past, and my crew chief Randall Burnett has a lot of experience there as well.”
