On Darlington: “This weekend is a chance at redemption for our Young’s Motorsports team. We had such a good truck in the spring but unfortunately with that huge wreck at the front with the leaders on the restart, we found ourselves a victim of circumstances and left with a lousy finish.


“Sunday will be my third start at Darlington, and I find myself getting better there with every lap turned.
