WHAT COMES TO MIND WHEN YOU THINK OF FONTANA?
DOES FONTANA PRESENT UNIQUE CHALLENGES?
“It is a big wide track with lots of places to pass, which is nice. Tire management is crucial at Fontana as over a long run they will fall off quite a bit. It is a horsepower track, which his good for us as our Ford Mustangs have considerable power.”
GREG ERWIN, CREW CHIEF NO. 12 WURTH FORD
HOW DO YOU FEEL HEADING INTO FONTANA?
“We are looking forward to this weekend at Fontana. It is a big wide open place, and I feel as though our Ford Mustang will be strong out there. Since we only come here once a year, this track presents challenges as the cars have undergone a lot of changes since last year. Overall, we feel like our Wurth Ford team is well prepared and we will continue to keep pushing and building momentum.”
BRAD KESELOWSKI, NO. 22 AMERICA’S TIRE FORD
HOW BADLY DO YOU WANT A WIN AT AUTO CLUB?
HOW COOL IS IT TO SEE YOUR TEAMMATE SITTING ATOP THE STANDINGS?
“It’s a great thing for everyone at Penske Racing to have Sam leading the points in the Nationwide Series. Sam is a good racecar driver. Greg is a good crew chief. They make a formidable combination and I think they will be strong throughout the year.”
JEREMY BULLINS, CREW CHIEF NO. 22 AMERICA’S TIRE FORD
WHAT IS YOUR WEEKEND OUTLOOK FOR AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY?
“Everyone on the America’s Tire Ford Mustang team is excited to get to Auto Club Speedway this weekend. We feel like we let one get away from us the last time we were on an intermediate track, which was Las Vegas earlier in the month. Our package for these tracks proved to be strong so I feel like we can get our first win of the season on Saturday.”
