“I love coming home,” said Overton in Victory Lane. “I don’t know what it is. When I drive through the gate here I have like, no stress. There’re only 26 cars, but there ain’t a bad one in the pits. It’s just so competitive now. If you can get up front, it’s way easier to lead these things than it is to pass.”

I don’t know. I had a lot more tire left that I thought I did, so I really wasn’t pressing the issue. He kinda caught me off guard. I appreciate him running me clean and I’ll remember that.”
