This week we return to Daytona International Speedway. Is there anything you can take from your visit there in February for the night race on Friday?
“It’s tough to take much from February’s race since we got swept up in a multi-car accident on lap 28 while battling for fifth. However, it is nice to head back to Daytona knowing we have the kind of speed we showed earlier this year. My No. 33 Chevy was really fast in February when we won the pole award, which was the first pole in my NASCAR career. We had the 33 car running in the top-five for the majority of the race before we got caught up in someone else’s mess just two laps before the end of stage one. I’m confident that we’ll return with just as much speed as before, but this time we’ll plan on running even closer to the front because at places like Daytona, even fifth place can be too far back in the pack and a bit of a danger zone. Stage racing has made that area of the pack a lot more intense when the laps wind down and people start going for stage wins and bonus points. The two front positions seem like the spots you need to be in to have a little bit of a buffer from the chaos.”
