This past weekend at Pocono Raceway with the ARCA Racing Series has been one that I will never forget. Just having the opportunity to race there meant the world to me and getting to go to Victory Lane put it over the top. It was such an amazing experience. I mean, I remember standing in that same Victory Lane 11 years ago celebrating a win with my Dad. It’s just a special moment, and I’m incredibly happy and thankful to have shared it with everyone who works on the Aaron’s Dream Machine/Hendrickcars.com Chevrolet.
The 600-mile event at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway is one of my three favorite races of the NASCAR Sprint Cup season. It’s at home so the garage is packed with people you know. There’s a ton of hype, and bragging rights are on the line. We’re hoping to defend our win this year.
Well, the next chapter of my racing career has officially begun. These first two weeks of racing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series have been an incredible opportunity for me and the No. 94 Aaron’s Dream Machine/Hendrickcars.com Chevrolet. We’ve been able to not only run inside the top 10, but finish there as well. Everyone here on this No. 94 team has worked extremely hard, and with our performances at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway and Rockingham (N.C.) Speedway, I can’t wait to get back to the track and run up front again.
