Vickers Sounds Off On Returning to Auto Club Speedway

"If we pick up from where we left off in the fall, we should have a pretty good day! We qualified decent, starting just outside the top-10. We worked hard all day and brought home a third-place finish."

Vickers On the Season Opener at Daytona

"We had a really strong car in Daytona. The team did a great job. It's Daytona and you never know who will go with you in the final laps. We ended up alone and shuffled back. It was still a solid day for the Dollar General team and a great start to our season."

The No. 32 Dollar General team will compete with chassis #037 in this weekend's Stater Bros. 300.
