– From the Driver’s Seat: “The ROVAL should be a good race. I feel like we’ve gotten our road course cars better. Watkins Glen was a good day for us getting a top 10. I think the ROVAL hopefully is an improvement on that and getting closer to that top five mark and being a little bit faster and a little bit more in contention than we were at Watkins Glen. I’ve run good at the ROVAL in the past, but still kind of figuring out the Next Gen car on the road courses and trying to get a bit stronger there.”
