“I’ve always enjoyed racing at Phoenix. We’ve had some strong runs there in the past in the Xfinity Series and I feel like we can do that again this weekend with our Poppy Bank Chevrolet. I feel like we made a lot of positive gains last week in Fontana and hopefully we can continue that once we unload on Friday. I know that Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) and everyone on this No. 8 team had some really good runs at Phoenix last year which gives me a ton of confidence that we can do that this year.” – Daniel Hemric
