Driver Scott Lagasse Jr. on the End of the Season:

"I keep saying it's been a crazy couple of months for me and hopefully this off-season I'll be able to take some time and digest everything that has been going on. I've been very fortunate to find a team like CJM Racing to help me further my career. This group supports me 100% and we've got some big changes for next season with switching Toyota's, help from Gibbs and now Paul Wolfe coming on board. I'm very excited about what's to come."

Driver Scott Lagasse Jr. on Racing at Phoenix:

"Phoenix is a unique track but one I definitely enjoy going to. It has a completely different feel than any other short track we go to because the corners are different and the "dogleg" in the back is much longer than the front stretch. It's a track you can pass on and have to be aware of your surroundings at all times. It reminds me of the short tracks I use to race on growing up."
