Confidence In Race Team Supports Momentum

TaxSlayer.com Chevrolet Camaro

“When you have momentum on your side, it certainly doesn’t hurt. Momentum helps everybody in the shop and helps everything flow a little smoother and easier. When it’s on your side you have to take advantage of it. We have a very confident group here, and that includes myself as a driver in not only my capabilities but also the team’s. We are to the point where I know what to expect from the cars they are putting under me. I know what’s going to happen each week with how they’re going to feel off the truck, how our weekend is going to flow and how we are going to adjust. I feel like we can compensate for the momentum swings because we are that confident as a race team and believe that much in what we’re doing at JR Motorsports.”
