Video Transcript

JOHN HUNTER: I just can't thank everyone at Toyota, Jack Irving, Kyle Busch, Uncle Eric, everyone for this opportunity. It means a lot to me. Mobil 1 on board. Coming back to the truck series, that was the plan, that was the goal.

We came into this year with the hashtag #HereForWins and we're here for wins. So I definitely think experience paid off tonight. We did an amazing job. Just can't thank Fire Alarm Services, Mobil 1, Ramco, all of our partners for all of their help. And thank you fans for being here. It's awesome to have all of you guys back and I can't wait to go celebrate.

- A second late race restart there. You had to hold off Kyle one more time. He was right on the bumper, gave you a good push. Once you guys got clear, what were you thinking? I mean, is he going to get it or not?

JOHN HUNTER: He was faster than me there in stage two, so I really didn't know. It was all about using our truck to the best that we could possibly do and rapping the bottom, taking the dirty airway He had to run up and it created more lap time for him. So overall, it's an awesome victory.

I wish my wife Taylor was here. Thank you for all the support. My family, everyone involved. She had to stay home because we're about to be on baby watch, so awesome.
