Talk about going to Auto Club Speedway for what could be the final time on this layout…

“I’d really like to win this race. It’s really high on my list for this year because it’s a place I haven’t won at in my career and most likely being the last time on this configuration would make it that much more special. Plus, it’s got a great trophy I’d love to add to my collection.”
