“I’m confident heading into Las Vegas this weekend. My guys have been putting in a lot of hard work to bring fast Silverados to the track every week. We had a strong run last week, but had one mistake that cost us the win. We’re looking for no mistakes this weekend to get that first win of the season and lock in to the next round of the playoffs.”
