CONCORD, N.C. – New year, new goals.

Well, in No. 24 team crew chief Alan Gustafson’s case, the main goal for 2017 will remain the same.

“Win races,” he said. “That’s going to be the focus.” caught up with Gustafson to ask about his New Year’s resolutions, and his No. 1 answer was returning to Victory Lane.

But he provided two other goals as well.

“To have fun,” he said. “That’s always the point. You want to try to enjoy everything and have fun. Winning usually is fun, so those go together well.”

And finally?

“Try something new or learn something new,” he said of resolution No. 3. “I always like to try to experience different things. Go somewhere or learn something or pick up a new hobby. I’ll probably focus on trying to do that, too.”
