  • Truex: “So this weekend we’re going to Watkins Glen. I’m really excited to get back to road course racing. I ran the (NASCAR) K&N East race there last year and got the pole and led a bunch of laps so I feel really comfortable going into this race. They just repaved the track a few years ago so it’s a little different now. It’s fast and treacherous and these Xfinity cars are already treacherous as it is. Track position is going to be important. We need to have a good car and these guys have had a good car in the past there. So I’m looking forward to it and it’s a good place to get a top 5 and hopefully battle for a win.”
