From Brian Vickers
How do you feel heading to Kansas after the results after the first Cup Series race with JGR?
“I’m looking forward to it. I really am. I think we learned a lot tonight. Texas is the first time that I’ve driven a Cup car, a Gen-6 car on a big track. It was a big learning curve for me. Just learning about these cars and the trend it takes under a green flag run and the difference between practice and race, etc. It was a learning curve. I think obviously working with a new team, being in the Gen-6 car at a mile-and-a-half for the first time for me was a lot to learn. I think we’ll take away from it tonight and go to Kansas and hopefully go after that win.”
How has it been working with JGR on the Cup side?
“It’s been really good. These guys have been great. They’ve been great to work with. Everyone has really welcomed me into the team. Working with Darian (Grubb, crew chief) and all the engineers has been pretty easy. I think at the end of the day we still have to learn what I want out of the race car and I’ve got to learn their cars and I have to communicate that to them. Some of that is just me learning what I need in this car and learning what I need in their cars and some of it is just understanding what that is. We’ll get there.”
