"I’m just glad to have these hot weather races behind us," said Stanfield. "We have really struggled at the last couple races. I am glad to have them over.

"We are going to go back home now and get ready for Indy. We have a list of thing we are going to work on, and I think it is longer than the time we have off.

"We want to ready for Indy, and to do that it is going to take a lot of work. So we are going back to work tomorrow. See you in Indy."
