JOHNNY BENSON, No. 1 Toyota Tundra, Red Horse Racing

How have you been preparing for this weekend's Toyota Pro/Celebrity race in Long Beach? "We've all been out to practice at Willow Springs (Calif.) and that really helped us get used to the cars and road racing. Last week, we got to practice on the actual Long Beach street course for the first time. Everyone got four practice sessions, but I had media obligations during two of them so I only got about 15 total laps of practice. I'm really looking forward to the race this weekend as it will be very challenging, but a lot of fun. Some of the celebrities are very good and they get a 30 second head start. I'm ready to get there and get it started and see how it goes. Hopefully, we'll bring the win back home!"
