Scott Sharp, No. 8 Delphi/Dallara/Toyota/Firestone---Fast Facts and Quote

"I really love the whole setting of Pikes Peak. It's a stop we all enjoy going to, especially this time of year, because Colorado is just beautiful. The track really provides a lot of excitement. For a mile oval, it's a fast mile. It's plenty wide. We all end up dealing with the altitude and its effects on downforce. It becomes a very challenging race for us all. There's usually a lot of side-by-side running, so I'm excited to get back there."
