We have a lot of support going into the event; the Mexican fans are just incredible. The track is a blast to drive and the roar of the crowd is an amazing feeling. This is a very important event for my team and my sponsors like Herdez, Roshfrans and Comex, I cannot think of a greater honor than to win on their home turf. I won the final race of the year last year and it was a nice feeling to enjoy over the winter, I intend to do the same this weekend!"
