QUOTE WORTHY

Bayne on Racing at Fontana:

“It’s always exciting to head out to California to race. The track at Fontana has a lot of seams in it, so it’ll be important to find the best lines during practice.”

Bayne on gaining momentum before the break:
“It’s great to have momentum after bringing a fast car to Daytona, then having two top-five finishes early in the season. We’ve done well, but we need a good finish at Fontana. That’s important going into the off weeks to carry that momentum through to the long stretch ahead.”
