Worsham prior to Norwalk:

"We are really looking forward to going to Norwalk this weekend; it's a great facility run by great people. I have great respect for the Baber family and what they continue to accomplish at their race track. It's one of my favorite places to go each summer, and hopefully, we can get our Alan Johnson Al-Anabi Racing Toyota Funny Car back in victory circle this weekend."
