Alfredo on Michigan: “I have a lot of confidence heading into Michigan this weekend. We have been getting better as a team every week and I have been learning more and more every time I hit the track. Pocono was tough since we got taken out before making a lap but that has made me even more eager to get back in the seat. We also have a new sponsor on board, Precision Vehicle Logistics, and I’m ready to give them a great first race along with my other partners and supporters.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
