“Winning the World 100 was really a dream come true for me. It took me five years of coming to the World 100 before I ever made the feature event. To win that race is just an incredible accomplishment for me and the Dunn-Benson Ford Motorsports team. I have to really thank my crew that travels with me, Jason Fitzgerald and Matt Langston for their dedication and hard work that they have put into our program this year. I couldn’t ask for any better guys to have on my crew than those two.
