What are your thoughts on racing Darlington Raceway?
"Darlington Raceway is a very unique track with the way its laid out. We race right up against the wall in the turns, which is even more challenging with how the cars transition out of turn 2 for the backstretch. Tire wear isn't as tricky as it was after they repaved it a few years ago, but it still offers a challenge because of how the asphalt has weathered so quickly. We get to race under the lights on a Saturday night and drivers and fans seem to enjoy these types of race. Being one of the original tracks on the NASCAR circuit means there is some great history to the Lady in Black. We just hope we get to add our name to the history books this weekend."
