- From the Drivers Seat: "After last season and only running part time, I'm so unbelievably grateful to be a part of Petty GMS and be back full time in the Cup Series. I've never been hungrier to go out there and prove that I belong in the 40 best drivers of our sport. I'm pumped to get the season started this weekend in LA and what this experience and atmosphere means for our sport as a whole. To go to a market that we haven't raced in before, in an iconic venue, will be something special. The No. 42 Black Rifle Coffee Company Chevrolet is going to look good and we will give it our all to make the feature."

- From the Drivers Seat: "It's pretty cool to go to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and race. There are a ton of unknowns going in to the weekend. It's been quite a while since NASCAR has raced on a quarter-mile track, but I'm excited about it. Just to race at that venue, on that stage, is going to be pretty neat. Also, if it goes well, it opens up a lot of opportunities for our sport going forward, as far as moving venues around. The FOCUSfactor team is ready to start the season."
