In the spring race at Texas, you progressively got better throughout the weekend and charged from 15th to finish fourth in the 200 lapper. Where is your confidence level at returning to Texas for the second time this season?
“Honestly, my confidence level is super high right now. We have had one of the fastest cars, if not the fastest, the last three races. We keep knocking on the door of another win, but things just haven’t been falling our way when it comes down to it. I expect to have a great car once again at Texas and I think we’ll be able to put together a better weekend than we had in the spring for sure.”
