“We had a pretty good No. 23 Chevrolet this weekend at Bristol. I wish we could have qualified for the Dash4Cash for Richmond but we came up a little short. Overall the weekend was solid. We showed speed in practice on Friday and had a decent qualifying attempt on Saturday. Towards the end of the race I was battling with a tight-handling Allegiant Chevy but it was manageable. I appreciate Chad (Norris, crew chief) and all of the GMS boy’s hard work to supply me with a car that can be in contention to win. I’m looking forward to Richmond next weekend.”
