On racing at Talladega Superspeedway…
“I don’t think anyone ever truly knows what to expect at Talladega (Superspeedway). I’m really looking forward to jumping in the draft and learning everything I can in practice and the first half of the race to hopefully get the 11 guys another win. It’s truly a race that’s up for grabs and Red Horse Racing always has race winning Toyota Tundras, so we’re looking forward to Saturday.”
