What are your expectations going to Kansas this weekend?

“Kansas is a place I always look forward to going to. It’s definitely a special place to me being where I got my first Xfinity win and I’ve had some really strong runs there in the Truck Series. I feel really good about our chances this weekend. We still have a shot at the regular season championship, so we’re going to have to start up front and get a lot of stage points to put some pressure on Austin (Hill), but anything is possible in these races. Overall, we want to have a solid day and hopefully we can get some more playoff points to put ourselves in as good of a spot as possible heading into next week.”
