David Levine on Daytona International Speedway:
“First, I would like to thank everyone at Lira Motorsports for giving me the opportunity to race in the ARCA Series with them this year. This is a dream come true for me and I can’t thank everyone enough. My car for this race was prepared by Kimmel Racing. I tested here in December with them and I think we learned a lot. I can’t wait to take the green flag and get the ARCA Series season underway!”
