How about that 6 truck! To go two-for-two is pretty cool, I think Mark is the first driver in the trucks to win the first races back to back. I could be wrong, but I think that’s the case.
Erik had a pretty good run for himself in Fontana, too. I think he was a little hard on himself, he was expecting to run a little better than he did. But to be the top finishing rookie and for it being the first time at California, I’d say he did well. Erik’s a racer, he always wants more. I like having a teammate with that intensity, I think it’s going to be a lot of fun when we start racing against each other. We’ll be teammates, but there’s some bragging rights to be had!
I’ve been going to the shop just about every day to hang with my guys. I’ve got to tell you, they are really happy with the way the team has performed but in no way are they relaxing. They want to keep winning these things every week. They’re going to go to Atlanta with the intention of keeping the streak going.
Martinsville can’t come soon enough for me. Knowing what these guys have put into these trucks, I’m ready to get out there and see what I can accomplish. Mark’s setting the bar pretty high, but I don’t feel the pressure to keep up with what he’s done. I’m just going to run my own deal and get what we can. Obviously the equipment and people are in place, so I know I’ll be getting the best opportunities each week.
I hope you’ve seen the Scotts commercial that we shot down in Daytona. It’s weird to see myself on TV, even after Driver X. I guess it’s just something that I’m not used to seeing. I’ll be on the couch hanging out or whatever, and there I am. It’s a strange feeling, but it’s pretty cool.
I am looking forward to Atlanta, we’ve got a couple of things scheduled for down there. I’ll let everyone know as it gets closer. If you’re going to be at the track, make sure you come and say hello.
I’m going to get out of here, I’ve got some running around to do. We’ll check in again soon.
Thanks for the support,
