Do you think Atlanta Motor Speedway is one of the 'raciest' mile-and-a-half tracks we race at?
"I think Atlanta Motor Speedway is one of the raciest mile-and-a-half tracks on the circuit for sure. I love Homestead-Miami Speedway, too. Both tracks remind me of each other, but Atlanta Motor Speedway is definitely slicker. It's one of those places that can be very frustrating and very fun at the same time. I really enjoy it at night, and I'm ready to get there. We saved one of our tests for later in the season and tested at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Our teams did learn a lot during the test, it was definitely helpful."
