How did you put all the chatter behind you and provide the address?

“First I would like to say thank you to my team, my pit crew. Everyone did a great job. They put us here. Great work for my team. I know what I did last week is unacceptable, and I apologize again. It was unacceptable because we could have had on two shots to win this deal, and that was stupid from an organized standpoint. I’m going to sit here and tell you I’m sorry as much as I can, but it won’t fix it. I have to fix my actions. Today I feel like I had a good race. We made some good moves. Me and 7( Justin Algaer) We’ve been racing hard. Hopefully we can put on a good show for you fans, thank you for everything you guys are doing.”
