From the Cockpit

“I’m looking forward to getting out to Phoenix and back behind the wheel of my Rheem Camry on Saturday afternoon. We’ve had a pretty solid start to the season, so we are looking to keep that momentum going as we continue this west coast swing. This will be the first short-track race of the season, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what we have and how we stack up with the rest of the field. This organization is firing on all cylinders right now, and it’s just a lot of fun to drive these Camry’s every weekend.”
