Quote: “We needed this finish bad, to come away with a Top-Ten at my home track in only my second time racing here is pretty awesome. I’d like to thank Rusty’s Off Road from coming on board and letting me pay tribute to Larry McReynolds with this awesome paint scheme. Nic at Lunch Time Investment’s over in Columbia. Really just everyone who supports me and this team it makes me super proud when we come away with an effort like this. My Xfinity Crew Chief Arthur Haire was subbing for Bruce Cook tonight, and he made some tremendous calls. That was a wild race with the trucks really having a hard time finding grip creating a lot of crashes. My Spotter Reid Sorenson did a great job in keeping me pointed in the right direction to avoid them all. I am really happy to bring this Rusty’s Off Road / Lunch Time Investment’s Chevrolet Silverado home with a Top-Ten.”
