“I’ve got the best car owners, and they believe in me,” Overton spoke on his confidence level. “This is a great car, we’ve got great sponsors, I’ve got an amazing family, my fiancé, everyone that keeps me digging. My little brother plus everyone here Steve, Kent, Mitch, Big Dave, Eric… What an amazing year, man.”
