  • Quotable: “Daytona always has such an electric atmosphere and gives off a special feel when starting the season. I’ve got a lot of new people working with me but I couldn’t be more excited to win some races with them. I know that my ThorSport Racing crew is going to give me fast and comfortable Bombardier Tundra. At a place like Daytona that’s all I can ask for and it then comes down to being up front every lap and avoiding the carnage.” – Ben Rhodes
