Denny Conversation – Darlington
"Last week was all about just going through the motions and getting the process of making a comeback -- getting that started. We executed that and now this week in Darlington it's about completing all the laps and being there at the end to have a shot at the win. We know what we have to do if we want to make the Chase, and this week is the first step, first race in that comeback. I'm ready to get to Darlington in the #11 Toyota and compete for the win Saturday night."
