"I'm definitely looking forward to getting back in the No. 33 Menards Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing. We had some really good runs last year in the Nationwide Series races we ran together. We led laps and I can't wait to get back with the team and build on what we did last year. I can't thank Menards enough for allowing me to race some Nationwide Series races with RCR, again, this year."
