You’ve earned one career win at Norwalk. What would another win mean on your quest for regaining the points lead?
“Norwalk is awesome and they give you an ice cream scoop when you win. I have one of those up on the wall and I’d like to add another one to it. Points are really close between our crew and (Ron) Capps. We have a great car and we’ve been putting in a lot of work with hot weather conditions and I think it’s going to pay off in the end for us. Hopefully, no matter what the conditions are, we’ll have a car ready to go. I feel really confident with the last two runs we made during Bristol that we’re moving in the right direction.”
Dodge’s headquarters is located 150 miles north of Norwalk in Auburn Hills, Michigan. TSR partner, DAYCO, is also headquartered 150 miles north of Norwalk in Roseville, Michigan. Talk about the significance of competing in a quasi-home race for both Dodge and DAYCO.
“We have so many great partners, including Dodge and DAYCO. With them being close to Norwalk, it’s a drivable distance to the track, so we’re looking forward to them coming out to support us. We love putting on a show for them. They do an amazing job keeping us surrounded by great people and parts.”
