You are on a streak of nine straight top-10 finishes, your best streak of the season. Do you think you can continue that this weekend and head into the playoffs with momentum?
“I really think we have a good shot at not only keeping our top-streak alive, but competing for a win as well. The race back in March was my first full Xfinity race at Las Vegas and we were forced to start in the back due to qualifying being cancelled, so this time around we should start the day with better track position and hopefully be able to keep the No. 98 up front all race long. I would love to get this team another win right before the playoffs and head into Richmond on a high note.”
