  • Truex: “We’re headed to Talladega this week fresh off two top 10s in a row and we’re looking to make it three. Our superspeedway package is good and we had a lot of success at Daytona so we’re looking forward to building on that. Talladega is its own animal; it always has its own challenges. For me it’s going to be about staying out of trouble as always, staying out of the ‘Big One’, being there at the end and having a shot to put this Bar Harbor Sea Watch Chevy in victory lane. The goal is to be there at the end and have a shot so we’ll see what we can do.”
