Quote

"I'm really excited for the Fontana race weekend. The race in Chicagoland was breathtaking the entire time and California Speedway is notorious for being a multi groove, side by side by side type race just like Chicagoland. There seems to be a large number of us drivers who are very hungry to finish the year with a couple of good results and are driving extremely aggressively to get those. All of that being said - I think Fontana will be Wild!"
