You had your best Xfinity Series finish at Dover earlier this season with a fifth-place run in May. What is your goal for this weekend as you return to this track for a second time this year?
“Obviously, the main goal is to avoid any mistakes and keep ourselves locked into the top-8 to advance to the next round of the playoffs. My personal goal is to just improve upon our last outing at Dover and keep the No.98 in the top-five. If we can stay up there throughout the race then we’ll have a shot to win. After last weekend, I’m super excited to get back on track and see what we can do, but I also know we have to keep playoff points in mind and be smart.”
