Talk about your first time at Daytona:
“Great Experience. I wished it would have ended better. The crew worked extremely hard to give me a fast truck that would run up front. I wished I could have made a few better choices while I was in there but I’m extremely happy about how we ran and what we accomplished. Already Looking forward to Talladega.”
