Quote:

“I’m excited to go to Canada this week. It’s my first time racing there, but we’ve gotten some time on the simulator with Chevy and they’ve done a good job of making the simulator translate to the racetrack so I would expect the same for this weekend. I enjoy road racing and I feel like this team has really been getting in a nice groove the last few weeks. It would be awesome to take that momentum and come back with my first win.”

Quote:

“Road courses are always a lot of fun, but Canadian Tire in particular brings it’s own challenges and the finishes have been wild the last few years. I had a strong run there last year and I’ve been on the simulator a bit so hopefully that will help this weekend. Being locked into the next round of the playoffs takes a lot of stress off these next couple of races. Winning would be great obviously, but we need to go out there and put together a solid finish and try to increase our lead in the championship.”
