Christopher Bell: “Loudon is statistically my best racetrack on the schedule and hopefully it stays that way. I think our short track package is really good. I really enjoy racing at New Hampshire. It’s fast enough to where aero matters, but mechanical grip is important too. Jason (Ratcliff) and the guys continue to bring fast Supra’s to the track and I’m ready to head north and see what we’ve got.”
