From the Cockpit:

Harrison Burton:

“I’m looking forward to Kansas this weekend and trying to rebound from Texas last week. I’ve always enjoyed racing at Kansas and think we have a good shot at coming home with good finish on Saturday. Morton Buildings is back on our Supra this week and we are running a scheme that is similar to my dad’s 2012 iconic Caterpillar paint scheme which is pretty cool. We also have a cancer hero’s name on our car this weekend through the Martin Truex Jr foundation, so it’s the perfect weekend to get our first checkered flag of the season!”
