What are your thoughts on Kansas Speedway?
"This is definitely the wildcard left on our schedule. No one really knows what to expect after Kansas Speedway was repaved, so the practice sessions on Thursday and Friday are very important. The OneMain Financial team has been strong on 1.5-mile tracks this season, so we feel good about our setup for this weekend. With four races left this season, our team is as focused as ever, and we want more wins before the season is over."
