On the Daytona International Speedway
“It is a dream come true to start my first full-time season of competition in one of NASCAR’s top-three series at the Daytona International Speedway. This will be my debut racing on DAYTONA 500 weekend – and it is really cool to go from watching this race from the grandstands as a kid to being behind-the-wheel of a Chevrolet Silverado in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
“I am excited to get this season underway with the team at CR7 Motorsports. They have been preparing all off-season and we are going to turn some heads this season.”
