The first Kentucky Speedway race is up this week. The track had a new configuration last year. What were your biggest takeaways from those races?
“That was a tough track last year with the new surface and configuration. It is much faster with the repave. I’m hoping it will have gotten some heat soaks on it by the time we return to help put some character back into the surface. Last year you could also clearly feel the banking differences between Turns 1 and 2 versus Turns 3 and 4. Turns 3 and 4 fall off a little more in the corner, which makes that end of the track the one we need to be more careful with as drivers. It can get tricky. But Kentucky has been a good track for me in the past. I had a lot of speed there with RCR a couple of years ago and finished fifth, which ended up being our career-best XFINITY Series finish so far.”
