Quote: “Las Vegas is a fun 1.5-mile track and they always have a great crowd there. We learned a ton last weekend about our downforce cars and will apply that to Vegas this weekend. Jason (Stockert, crew chief) and I are really starting get in a groove on our communication and we are eager to get back on the track and continue improving.”
