Quotable:
“The Countdown is here. Reading is going to be a big race, and could be a very pivotal weekend. It’s the first of seven Countdown races, and I’m excited to get back there, especially with it being close to a home track for me, and I can’t wait to see all of my family and friends. We definitely want to get off to a great start, and I believe we’re ready for this. Our Matco Tools/Toyota/SiriusXM/Global/Hangsterfer’s team is ready to go to work.
