What are your thoughts as you head to Homestead?
“This has been such a great year partnering with Rheem, Menards and Richard Childress Racing to drive this No. 2 car. It’s been an up and down year results-wise, but we’ve had solid runs in each race. Sometimes bad luck just got in the way. I’ve never been to Miami in the XFINITY Series, but I’ve found some success there in trucks. I also went to the simulator with our engineers to get ready just like I have before each race this year, and I’m feeling good heading into the weekend. This team has worked hard all year, and I’m hoping that we can finish strong to close out their season.”
