From the Driver’s Seat:

Erik Jones: “I’m excited to get to Chicago. Chicago has been a good track for me in the past. We’ve had good success there in Xfinity and Trucks as well. With the Cup car we’ve always run well the last few years. I feel like the last few mile-and-half races we’ve got a hang of the package pretty well and had fast Camry’s. Hopefully we can put it all together and come out with a win.”

 

From the Pit Box:

Chris Gayle: “We should have a really good car for Chicago this weekend. As you look at the season as a whole we’ve been really fast and had a lot of weird items/problems keep us from getting the finishes indicative of our speed. Chicago was a really strong track for us last year and we had really good long run speed to come back from an early pit stop and restart issue to finish sixth. Not a whole lot from 2018 transfers to the setups and car speed at the intermediate tracks in 2019; however, typically a good car at Charlotte is a good car in Chicago. I feel like we had a really strong car in Charlotte and didn’t get to show it due to the tire issue early in the race. So I’m very excited to get to Chicago and show what kind of car speed we have. I definitely think it’s a place we can go get the first win of the season and get locked into the Playoffs.”
