Ty Gibbs, Driver of the No. 54 Monster Energy Toyota Camry XSE: 

“Talladega is a wild card and we haven’t had good finishes there in Cup, so hopefully that will change this week. I’ve never finished all 500 miles, so hopefully we can do that and get a good finish in our Monster Energy Toyota Camry XSE.”
