Talk about your night…
“I’m super bummed, we were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. My guys worked extremely hard for weeks to bring me a fast Toyota Tundra. I know it’s not the night we wanted but I want to thank all my guys at KBM, Toyota and Louisiana Hot Sauce. We had a chance to go out there and compete for the win but now I’m putting that behind me and looking forward to my next race in two weeks at Talladega (Superspeedway).”
