“To be honest, that race was kind of Plan A. That one went the way it hopefully does. The Circle K Oberto Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross Beetle is on rails, and it’s super fast. To be fair, these guys are catching up and it’s getting tight. I’m really looking forward to a really competitive last half of the season – we’re really going to have to be on our A game. Fortunately, we got some great points this weekend – it gives us the points lead and we’ve just got to hold on. We’re three for three – no complaints!”

“I do not have the best record in New Jersey. Last year, we had the puncture while leading the Final, and this year certainly did not come without challenges. There was a lot of good, hard rallycross and there was a lot of rallycross that was simply too hard, both from others and myself. With 10 cars on such a tight track, there’s bound to be contact, but this was a particularly difficult weekend for some reason. As we look on to Seattle, I do have a good record there and we have yet another double-header weekend with rain likely in the forecast. We’ll move on to the next round, and look to bounce back.”

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