Quotes | Regan Smith

“This team has a good outlook for the rest of the season. Of course we were disappointed with the results last week, but those are the unknown variables in racing. All we can do is pick ourselves up, move on and focus our energy on the Charlotte weekend and the final four races. We’re going to do everything we can to get another win before this season’s end. And it’s far from over. You never know how things will shake out by year’s end. So we’re looking forward to racing Charlotte under the lights.”
