  • “From what I watched of the Vegas test last month, it’s going to be a little bit hairy and crazy. It definitely looked like the leader had a big advantage. I’m a little worried about that, but it looked like the racing throughout the pack was pretty good. Hopefully we’ll be in good shape and be the leader a lot of the time because that’s where I feel like you want to be. That’s going to take a lot of execution – pit road, pit stops, restarts, all those things. It’s going to be interesting That’s another thing we haven’t seen is double-file restarts with the new package and what does that look like. How long does the field stay two by two? Does it go 10, 15, 20 laps or does it string out fairly quickly? All the testing we’ve done so far has been guys just go out there, they line up and they get going. It hasn’t been competition. We really haven’t seen the full effect of what we’re going to see yet.”
