Burney on racing at home in Nashville:

"Nashville is home for both me and my sponsor, Dollar General, which is headquartered in Goodlettsville, Tennessee, so racing at Nashville Superspeedway is very special. I look forward to sharing the weekend with a small portion of the 72,500 members of the Dollar General family, as well as with my family and our close friends. In addition to it being my home track, I love racing at Nashville. It's a fun track that I have always run well at. Taking the No. 32 Dollar General Toyota there, I know we will unload and be fast. I anticipate we'll get dialed in quickly and have a great race!"
