What are your thoughts heading into the first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race of the season at Daytona International Speedway? “It’s time to go racing. Richard Childress Racing started the season off on the right foot with Kevin Harvick winning the Sprint Unlimited. That win has the entire organization energized for this season, and I can’t wait to get back on the track. My teammate Ty Dillon and I have been picked as favorites to do well this season and I’ve been reunited with my former crew chief. It’s going to be a great season, and I can’t wait to get it started.”
