From the Cockpit

“Leaving Richmond with another top-10 and a shot at running in the top-five has my team really confident. Richmond has been one of the tougher tracks for me, so having a strong run there was a big personal milestone to achieve. Talladega is a track where I have been so close in the past, and I feel like we will be in contention to run really well this weekend. We have a new sponsor on board this weekend with XYO Network, so it would be great to get a good finish for their debut with Joe Gibbs Racing.” – Brandon Jones

From the Pitbox

“Everyone on the 19 team feels as though we have started to hit our stride since the two week break before Texas. We have had top-five speed each week and have two top-10 finishes to show for it even after having to overcome adversity along the way. We feel as good as anyone can about going to Talladega and having a good run there. We are looking forward to getting the weekend going and keeping on the path of improvement.” – Chris Gabehart
