This is a track that you and Shiplett have visited the least throughout your careers (minus the ROVAL). What can we expect from the No. 00 Haas Automation Ford Mustang this weekend?
“We have ran good here in the past and Mike won here in 2016 with Justin Marks. We had an incident in 2017 but we came back in 2018 and finished seventh and started fourth. We got our first road course out of the way last week with a little hiccup in practice, but if we can keep everything in line for this weekend, I think we will be there at the end of the race and hopefully competing for the win.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
