Hamlin Conversation (New Hampshire)
New Hampshire has been a good track to you in the past, how would you evaluate that track?
"I think we're going to go into New Hampshire very confident, especially after our Richmond win. We're going to take the same car with a very similar setup and go out and perform. All the Chase races over the past few years at New Hampshire have been great for us, we've finished in the top five, but it always seems like trouble can be found there."
