Are you looking forward to racing at Watkins Glen International?
"Road courses have never been my strong suit, but I am actually really looking forward to going to Watkins Glen International after our team's performance at Sonoma Raceway in June. Sonoma was fun. It made me realize that road course racing can be fun and it got me excited for Watkins Glen. I came to Watkins Glen with my brother and tested a Trans Am car a few weeks ago. It rained, but I was still able to learn some things. The race to the Chase is on, so my whole team is going into the race motivated to perform."
