Cameron Hayley on First Start at Daytona:
“I’m really excited to be racing at Daytona for the first time. The opportunity to work with such vast talent at ThorSport Racing is a dream come true for me. ThorSport Racing is a championship-winning team with great resources and equipment. I know I’ll lean heavily on my crew chief Jeff Hensley, who has a long history in this sport, and I’m sure I will rely on my teammates Matt (Crafton) and Johnny (Sauter) as well. They both have had a lot of success at Daytona and any advice they can give me will be beneficial. Our goal is to learn as much as we can in every practice and see what we can do to get a good finish for the No. 13 Cabinets by Hayley team Friday night.”
