  • “Our team is really looking forward to getting to California this week. It’s one of my favorite tracks and I felt good about the test back in January. Obviously the weather is going to be different and there will be more than three cars like at the test, but we feel like we’ve learned a lot about the package since then. We need to go in there Friday and unload strong and carry that through the weekend. I’m excited to see if we can go back to back there because it’s really turned into one of the most fun tracks on the circuit.”
