From the Cockpit:

Erik Jones: “I’m looking forward to getting back in to the No. 20 Reser’s Camry this weekend after winning the last two races (Texas and Bristol) with this team. Like Daytona, Talladega is a place where you can’t do a lot as a driver other than to try to stay out of trouble. I know Gabehart (Chris, crew chief) will bring another fast car this weekend, we’ll just need to put ourselves in the right positions throughout the race, make it through each stage and if we can do that, I have no doubt we’ll have a shot at the end.”
