What are your expectations going back to the Chicago Street Course?

“I’m excited about it. I felt like we had a car capable of winning there last year. It just didn’t work out to have an opportunity because of the weather. Obviously, that was an unprecedented scenario having to call the race early, but I would have liked to have at least seen what we could have done as the race played out. Hopefully we can do one spot better this year. It’s a stacked field, so it’s going to be a challenge, but I feel like I’m driving for the best team in the Xfinity Series, and we have a shot to win any time we’re on track.”
