  • RT: “So this weekend is Atlanta Motor Speedway. It’s our first mile-and-a-half race and this is really when we start to see how good we are, how good we stack up to the competition. Atlanta’s a high-wear race track and it’s been a while since I’ve been there in an Xfinity car…my first start there was in 2011. So I’ve got a little bit of catching up to do with these cars with the lower downforce and it’s a long race. Tire management is going to be the key and having the right strategy to have tires at the end will be huge. Hopefully our Bar Harbor Sea Watch Chevy will be fast and we can put her in victory lane.”
