“It’s such an awesome opportunity to come up here and race in the NASCAR Xfinity Series at Daytona for a team like JR Motorsports. Their success at this place is second-tonone and I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of this No. 8 Chevrolet and see what we can do in the draft on Friday. Hopefully I can work well with my teammates all night long and avoid all the trouble that can happen out there and come home with a great finish.”
