Pastrana on racing at Darlington:
“Darlington is a very unique track and I’m glad I was able to experience it last year. It was very intimidating for me to run up against the wall at 180 mph last season, but I gained confidence this year at Auto Club Speedway and hope to find the confidence that I lacked at Darlington last time.”
