Your crew chief, Richard Boswell, won here last year. How much confidence does that give you heading into this weekend?
“It definitely gives me a little extra confidence heading into Atlanta knowing that my crew chief, my team, and the car won there last year. We are actually taking the exact same car that Kevin Harvick won with last year and pretty much the exact same setup. With that being said, it is supposed to rain all weekend, which is a good and bad thing. If it does rain-out practice, we know we should be good, but the bad thing is that it may not work with my driving style. I feel like my dirt background translates well to Atlanta, so I am hoping for a great weekend.”
