Driver Scott Lagasse Jr. On His Goals At The Start Of The Season:

"This is a results driven business no doubt so you're always looking for results, but that being said its newer organization and a young group of guys so for a lot of us this is our first time working together. You don't really know where to set the level except to get started and see what happens. I think we've gelled quicker as a group -- we have an absolutely great group of guys back at the shop and on the road. We've got basically a full fleet of cars together and ready minus the Phoenix car, which we hated that. We just keep working and growing from where we're at and I think we have a great place to start. We are probably doing a little better than what we expected even."
