Talk about going to Darlington for the first time with the new car…

“Darlington is a challenging track no matter what you’re driving, so it’s going to be a handful regardless. Our team is looking forward to the challenge. I have a lot of confidence going there with the success we’ve had the past few years and the things we’re learning about this new car, so I’m definitely excited about this weekend.”
