The last time you raced a road course in the NASCAR Xfinity Series (Charlotte Roval) you came awayvictorious. How confident are you heading into Watkins Glen?
“I don’t really consider myself a great road course racer, but for whatever reason I tend to run well at them. This will be my first time racing at Watkins Glen, so it will be a learning curve for sure but I’m up for the challenge and can’t wait to get there. Hopefully we can double down and pick up another win this weekend in our Ford Performance Mustang and get ourselves in an even better position for the playoffs.”
