From the Cockpit:

Harrison Burton:

You have raced a Supra at Homestead. How does that help you prepare for two races this weekend?

“It helps me a lot. It’s a super big advantage for me, compared to normal. It’s hard to go to these places and drive into turn one not really knowing what to expect at all. I have a test under my belt from years past, and I have raced there as well, so I’m feeling pretty confident about going somewhere that I’ve been to before and running the top again which is super fun. It’s going to be hot and slick, and we are going to be sliding around so it should be a good show.”

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