In the process claiming the ARCA East Championship and the Sioux Chief Showdown Title

“Yeah it’s pretty cool, you know, the sword is pretty awesome. Obviously, to do it with the Sioux Chief Championship and the East Championship on the line is pretty cool. To go out and win the race and try to get all three was my goal – to try and do all three. But, coming here I just really wanted to get a sword and I’m glad we were able to do it. Hopefully we can go be competitive tomorrow and go get another win.”
