TY DILLON QUOTE:
You’re competing for a XFINITY Series championship and racing in the Sprint Cup race. How do you balance the two?
“Spending extra time in the Cup car actually really helps me in the XFINITY Series car. Extra seat time will be critical this weekend, knowing we probably have to finish very well to win the championship. I’m thankful for the opportunity and glad that Nexium is back on-board for another race. I think at the end of the day you have to focus on driving as best as you possibly can every time you are behind the wheel and everything else will play itself out.”
