“I’m really looking forward to getting to Phoenix this weekend and ending this season on a strong note for everyone on this Poppy Bank No. 8 team. We have been so close all season long to getting to Victory Lane and I am going to give it everything we can to get that done for all of the guys on this team. They have worked so hard all season long and I can’t thank them enough for everything. It’s a big weekend for JRM as a whole as well and hopefully we can end the day on Saturday with a win for this No. 8 team and a championship for teammate Justin Allgaier.”
