“Overall, there were highs and lows for the Alpha Energy Solutions Toyota Tundra team, but I feel like we had an awesome truck going into the race. The guys did everything right.”
“Martinsville Speedway, it’s the type of track I grew up racing on – the paperclip-style racing, the short-track style racing, and I’m looking forward to getting back to that, the short tracks. The high-speed stuff is fun, but the beating and banging is what I know, and I think the fans love it too, there is always a great turn out there. Surprisingly enough, you do feel the aero at Martinsville, which is crazy only being a half-mile track, and I’m excited for it. I know ThorSport Racing has a good program there – they have some wins, and their trucks are always fast, and always at the front of the pack.”
