From the Cockpit:
Daniel Suárez: “I’m looking forward to Friday night and getting back behind the wheel of my ARRIS Tundra. We struggled a little bit last week at Texas, but we never gave up and continued to battle as a team and earned a top-five finish. I’m really proud of everyone that works on this ARRIS Tundra, and I want nothing more than to get over the hump and get our first win of the season on Friday night.”
From the Pit Box:
Bono Manion: “I’m looking forward to Phoenix and racing under the lights on Friday night. We struggled a little bit last week at Texas (Motor Speedway), but continued to battle all night and earned a great top-five finish. Phoenix is a really tricky place to get right, but we will work on Friday morning at getting our ARRIS Tundra dialed in for the race and hopefully come back to North Carolina with our first win of the season on Friday night.”
