BRIAN SCOTT, No. 16 Albertsons Toyota Tundra, Xpress Motorsports Why have you been so successful this season? "My hat's off to our guys. Everybody on our Xpress Motorsports Albertson's Toyota Tundra put in really hard work and a good effort in the shop. That ultimately translates to how we show up at a race. We unload well and we run well. That's just their preparation. All the guys work tirelessly. Jeff Hensley is the best crew chief when you get to a race track. He calls a great race and he can see it through to the end. He knows our fuel mileage. He knows our pit strategy. He has it figured out. I'm just lucky enough to go out there and drive. If I don't screw up and we don't have any bad luck, we can contend for a win every week."
