Quote:

“These two weeks off have been anything but ‘off’ for us here at Fury Race Cars. We've had a very short amount of time to kickstart the new Xfinity program, but everyone here has done a tremendous job getting our car together. Even though this is a new team, I already have chemistry with everyone at Fury from prior experience. We've been busy, but we're already having fun together and we're looking forward to continuing that atmosphere at Charlotte this weekend. Charlotte has always felt like a second home track to me, even though this will only be my second race on the big track. I'm beyond thankful for everyone who has helped this program come together so quickly. Let's go see what we can do!”
