2013 has been a year that I will never forget. I am so thankful for the opportunities I had this year and owe it all to everyone who worked on the Aaron’s Dream Machine/Hendrickcars.com Chevrolet.
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.
