Quotes:
"I am excited about heading to Kansas Speedway this weekend with the No. 23 group. Kansas holds a special place in my heart after collecting my first Xfinity Series win there in 2019 with Chip-Ganassi Racing. I enjoy the track a lot. After it was repaved in 2012 a lot of drivers were nervous that it would take a while to gain its characteristics back, but I feel like it has actually matured quite nicely and it widens out pretty well. We have a special pink FAS scheme this weekend in honor of breast cancer awareness and will have pink ribbons displayed on the car of sponsors and GMS family members names that are breast cancer survivors, fighters and those no longer with us. We are racing for a cause this weekend and it would be awesome to park those names in Victory Lane."

"It was awesome to be able to make the playoffs for Maury and this GMS Racing team but I'm disappointed that we didn't advance into the next round. It came down to mistakes and we messed up on pit road which hurt us. We did what we needed to do in both of the stages and outpointed the No. 1 of Annett but it just wasn't mean't to be. We had a solid day and brought home another top-10 but it wasn't enough to advance. We will move on and head to Kansas Speedway in a few weeks."

Quotes:
"Dover is an awesome place to race at because the track is so intense and brutal, mentally and physically. We had a solid showing there in the Spring and every track that we have gone back to this year we have improved at. We made up some ground, points wise, last weekend at The ROVAL to put us tied with the No. 19 and 11 points behind Michael Annett who is right above the Round of 8 cut off line. We need to unload with some speed of the hauler and focus on gaining as many points as we can so that we can advance."
