We’re coming up on our first road course race of the year. What have you done to prepare for this stretch of races?
“This stretch of road courses is going to be tough. I ran the K&N race in Sonoma to help get my mind ready for road course season and we ran pretty well there so I am looking forward to getting to Watkins Glen. I will be spending some time in the simulator this week and I will watch film from the past races to ensure I am ready. We ran sixth here last year so we have a little to build on to make sure we are in contention for the win this weekend.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
