"Plus we switched chassis makes and just now got this new Longhorn Chassis and I'm pumped about this piece we've got in the shop now. I can't thank Heath Pittman with J&P and Sons Construction and Sweet Onion Trucking enough, along with Chris Medley from Modern Images, for all that they have done for my team with this new car. I'm ready to go racing again and hopefully we are fast right out of the box next week at Virginia Motor!"
