Does driving the No. 24 car come with more pressure or motivation?

Byron: It's a little bit of both, I think. There is a lot of motivation to try to establish yourself in that car and try to make a name with it and continue the tradition the 24 car has.

How will the Chevrolet Camaro fare in 2019?

Byron: It was a little bit of a battle for us in the previous year to get the car better and how we need it to be competitive. I think during the year we managed to close that gap. I think that this will continue this year. With the rules package being quite different this year I think it will continue to help us adapt to the rules with our car. I think we will have a lot better idea what we need to do to be successful.

How will things change working with Chad?

Byron: The difference will be the expertise and his knowledge. He is very motivated to do it and that's really a great thing. We've got a lot of good people, young people in our team, a lot of people who are ready to have a shot and win races. I'm looking forward to those things and I think the team is fresh and I think his expertise and knowledge will help us in long term. So I'm really looking forward to work with him.

What would like to see in terms of schedule changes?
