"The guys have given me a great opportunity here to be part of a team," he said. "I don't go home on Sunday night and sit there and wait for them to build my race cars better or bring me better stuff on Thursday. I go to the shop on Monday and I'm part of a team and part of building that process. It's been an awesome road."
