“It’s going to be a busy weekend for me at Phoenix and I couldn’t be more excited. I couldn’t think of a better track to run triple-duty at. Since they moved the start-finish line to the old Turn 2, right before the tracks dog-leg, the restarts and finishes are insane. ISM Raceway always puts on a great show for the fans and I can’t wait to be apart of all three events this weekend.”
