Jeffrey Earnhardt on Charlotte:
“I’m really eager to get back to Charlotte this weekend. Back in May we were able to learn a lot during the race that will benefit myself, and the team heading into this weekend. With much cooler weather forecasted for this weekend, it will create its own set of challenges, but I have confidence we can come out with a solid finish.”
