You've had a small break from NASCAR XFINITY Series action the last couple of weeks.
"Yeah, I've had a couple of weeks off. I'm ready to get back behind the wheel of the No. 2 Rheem Chevrolet this week at Daytona (International Speedway). The team has had some good finishes in the weeks I haven't been in the car. They unload a fast car each week and it won't be any different this time. We won this race last year, so we have some good notes to use for the race on Fridaynight. I think we can go out there and contend for the win again."
What are your thoughts on the season so far and your goals for the remainder of the year?
"We've had a good season so far. I think we've let a couple races get away from us, but the No. 2 team never gives up. I'm really looking forward to the second half of the season. We have a lot of good things going on at RCR right now and an awesome driver lineup. We have a great team that wants to continue to produce better results every week. We are all so motivated right now and refuse to lose. We're going to finish this season strong."
