“I am really pumped up for DuQuoin this weekend. My confidence going in is at an all-time high, based off our speed at Springfield. Our finish doesn’t show it but we were the fastest car there, and we’ve got even more ideas going into this weekend to improve our speed. It’s been a little bit of a frustrating year based on results, but if we execute in every area throughout the day we should be in the right spot to finally win in our #28 GMPartsNow Chevrolet. To be able to do another double duty weekend, racing at DuQuoin and Winchester both is exciting. Winchester is so unique, and I haven’t had the
chance to run the super late model much throughout the year. Having the chance to race at Winchester in preparation for the Winchester 400 is a really cool opportunity. Thank you to Precision Fleet Image, Berger Chevrolet and all of our partners for helping to make it possible.”
