You’re making your first Xfinity Series start at Kentucky Speedway, how are you preparing for this weekend?
“I have been to Kentucky one time in Trucks and one time in ARCA, but this will be my first time hitting the track in an Xfinity car. I have been talking with Cole and the other Stewart-Haas drivers this week to try and pick up some tips and just really know what to expect. We will go to the Ford simulator just like we do every week as well and try to get the best possible feel for the track before we get there on Thursday. I’m looking forward to the challenge and I’m ready to get the No. 98 Ford Performance Mustang back up front.”
