Front Row Motorsports rookie Matt Tifft has found that expectations for competing in the Cup Series are a little bit different from reality.

Harrison Burton is ready to "take it" on track in the NASCAR Truck Series and he's going to tell you what that means. The ROY candidate for Kyle Busch Motorsports assesses what will make his team go from good to great; why he might have to change his methodical driving style; if his first full season is playing out as expected; if he struggles with his confidence and what led Burton to punching some metal stairs recently; his outlook for the playoffs now that Ross Chastain has thrown a wrench into the grid; if he's a driver who asks questions of veterans around him; does he ever wish his last name wasn't Burton and he didn't drive for Kyle Busch? What it was like getting behind the wheel of a Xfinity Series car. Reflecting on the ending of his high school career, being able to focus more on racing, whether he'll go to college, and it's like for a driver balancing school work and racing responsibilities; what his 'racing with #somethingtoprove' means in his Twitter bio; and looking at the next few Truck Series races he'd like to capitalize on before the dirt race at Eldora rolls around.
