Browns, Cavs, Indians – I’m a fan of them all. However, I had never been to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course until I ran it for the first time in 2017 and finished third.Read More

Kentucky was the site of my debut in the NASCAR Xfinity series, in which I finished 10th in 2015. It’s also the second track I raced at after making myRead More

It’s one of my favorite tracks we visit, and one I’ve always seemed to do well at in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Dover is just so different from anywhere else we go to on the schedule.Read More

Logistically, having three cars ready to go in advance so that they can be traded out and worked on in hotel parking lots is no easy feat for the teams. For drivers, we have to figure out what works best for us to beRead More
