Quotable: “We picked up the big race here the first of the year, and we come back and I’m just glad to park it in victory lane,” Stevens said. “We’ve been close, we’ve been good, we’ve just had bad luck and been working the kinks of the new car. I think we finally found a balance and I’m excited to go forward.”
