“I had a blast racing at Salem tonight. It’s such a cool track. We had a fast Chevy Accessories Chevrolet tonight, but I don’t think anyone had anything for Ty (Gibbs, race winner). We had a great test at Lucas Oil Raceway on our way here this week, so hopefully we can come back to Indiana in October and get my first ARCA win. First we have to take care of business in the K&N East Series next weekend at New Hampshire.”
