The 2018 race at Atlanta didn’t go as planned. What are your expectations leading up to the race this weekend?
“We’ve always been fast at Atlanta, we just haven’t had the finishes that we have wanted. Mike (Shiplett) and the team are going to try some things that we haven’t tried before to see if they will work, so I am excited to see what kind of speed we have when we unload on Friday. The weather looks like it’s going to throw a curveball at us with how much rain is being predicted over the weekend, so we are going to have to learn pretty quickly and think on our feet to get the Jacob Companies Ford Mustang to victory lane.”
