“Our first goal for Talladega is just to run all the laps. The Superspeedway racing can be so hit and miss, with getting caught up in stuff outside your control, we just need to make it to the checkered flag. Superspeedway racing is just a big chess game and that caught me off guard in Daytona, but having that race under my belt I’m prepared to be more aggressive at Talladega and more willing to try different things in the racecar to get us up front. Our team as a whole is gelling so much better than we were at the start of the season because we’ve had some time to work together. I’m in the shop with them every week and the camaraderie has grown so much. We know how to communicate and what we’re looking for in the car so I’m looking forward to heading to Talladega this week and having a chance to put our Chevy in victory lane.”
