“We had a great car all weekend from the moment we pulled it off the hauler, until the last lap of the Final; the team just did a great job. The track was unbelievably fun. This is the first time we’ve been to a track that was predominantly some sort of gravel mix and it was just so fun because every time you went out onto the track it was a little bit different. There was water in areas there wasn’t before and the track was changing during the race. It was the most fun I’ve had driving yet. I’m so glad it happened here in Indy because it’s our home race and there was so many friends and family that were able to come to this one. I’m definitely looking forward to coming back here and big shout out to everyone at Oberto, Circle K and Expedite Home Loans.”

“Today was pretty hard. We had penalties in two out of the three heat races this weekend which had us swimming uphill. To get into the middle of the front row for the final was a big win for our team. The guys have just been cranking all year. This is just a one-race weekend and not a doubleheader, but it’s amazing how difficult it is but it’s so nice to be in Indianapolis. Last time I was here on a racetrack, I was the yellow driver for the Hot Wheels jump at the Indy 500 and that was almost as much fun as it is to race a Global Rallycross car …almost. I was so excited to see so many Indianapolis fans out here to see a new sport. We have a blast every weekend.”

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
