What is your mindset for this weekend as you make your Nationwide Series debut at Chicagoland?
"We're going back to a 1.5-mile track, where I see our team improving greatly. We raced this same Camaro a few weeks ago in Kentucky, and it was probably our strongest car yet. I'm excited to make some laps at Chicagoland, it's a great track and I was able to get into victory lane a few years ago in the ARCA race. All things are looking up for this weekend."
