CONCORD, N.C. -- No. 48 team crew chief Chad Knaus closed out 2016 with a championship celebration.

“My biggest resolution is to get in better shape next year," Knaus said. "I know everybody says that, but last year I really fell pretty far off the wagon. I didn’t do as good a job as what I typically do, so that’s all going to start up again."

"Spend more time with my wife," Knaus said.
