By the numbers, Bristol Motor Speedway is one of your best tracks. What are some of the challenges of racing at Bristol?
“There is usually a lot of competition at Bristol Motor Speedway with many Cup drivers wanting to come down and race with us. That’s a challenge in itself with just the number of cars out on such a tight track. I feel like I do well at Bristol though because of all my experience racing there. It’s a track I’ve grown up at with all the different series I’ve raced in there. I’ve done races in both the Camping World Truck Series and K&N Pro Series East there, which definitely helps every time we return. It’s still a tricky place though. We’re bunched up in traffic all the time out there, but you’re still constantly trying to set up passes and complete them while you’re surrounded out there. It’s a fun challenge and unlike any other track we visit.”
