Cale Conley Quotes:

“I consider this the first real race of the season because I won’t have to depend on the draft. I watched the race at Atlanta last year, so I know the track gets slippery and loses a lot of pace because the tires wear out. I’ll be watching tapes and talking to experienced drivers so I know what to look for in practice and how to have a good-handling racecar come the green flag. Luckily, the whole No. 14 team meshed really well at Daytona. We didn’t get the result we wanted, but I am excited to work with them throughout the season.”
