“Daytona has always been a great track for me. It’s super special that Matt and Chris are letting me drive their race car.  I always enjoy that Friday night Xfinity Race. It’s also cool to bring a new sponsor to the sport (DaaBIN Store), and it’s a huge deal for them to be at a big race like Daytona. Having a good team, strategy and spotter are vital. Everything just needs to sync up to be able to pull off a win at Daytona. It’s a pretty cool opportunity for Matt to have four shots at getting a trophy. I am excited for it, as well as competing in the race on Saturday night in our No. 31 Celsius Camaro in a race that I have won in the past.”
