After our performance at Michigan, we feel pretty confident about our strategy and approach. Our TSM team keeps putting in the hours to make sure we have the best truck on the track and I couldn’t be happier with where we’re at right now. Bristol’s going to get interesting though.

“Bristol is one of the most challenging tracks on the circuit; you just never know what is going to happen there. We have a great truck prepared to take with us, and I think we have a great shot of giving Rheem and everyone at Turner Scott Motorsports back-to-back wins.”

“Bristol is a really special place for me. It’s where I made my first ever Truck Series start, and it’s a place where we have celebrated having Oliver in our life. It’s also just a special race because of the history, the setting, the short-track racing under the lights. The fans and the energy bring a higher level of excitement there. I’m looking forward to being able to carry the momentum of our last two finishes into Bristol, and I feel confident about the truck we’re bringing. We all keep saying that our first win is coming, and Bristol would be a very special place for that.”
