From the Cockpit:

Harrison Burton:

You are headed to a couple of road courses that you have no experience on. What do you do to prepare for them?

“I’ve already been working. I used a lot of my Kansas simulator time to work on my road course like Road America and Daytona. Our TRD simulator was really good for Indianapolis. I think all of our teammates fired off really well there. We knew what was where on the track, and I was able to make pretty decent speed. I expect to run top-five there. There is no reason that we can’t. I’ve got a great race team. I have a lot of confidence in myself and hopefully, we can go out and run well. There’s a lot of guys like Austin (Cindric) that have a lot of road course experience that will be tough to overcome, especially my first time there with no practice, but I’m excited for the challenge.”

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