Quote:

“I’m really looking forward to getting back on a road course this weekend at Road America. Even though I haven’t had a chance to race there before in an Xfinity car, I am extremely confident that we will unload with a fast Switch Chevrolet, especially since we are coming off of a really strong run at the last road course in Mid-Ohio. Hopefully we can back up the speed we had there this weekend without running into any trouble. If we can do that, I feel like we will be in contention all day long on Saturday.”
