I’m thankful that we have practice this weekend because this track is challenging, especially with no practice. I’m looking forward to Phoenix, because it’s such a fun track for drivers. It can be a really good place for the No. 3 Dow Coatings Camaro ZL1 1LE team. We’re planning to end the season on a high note.”

It’s obviously a big weekend for not only the championship four, but for every team to have a good memory to head into the offseason with. Phoenix has been one of those tracks where we have had speed at times and then other times we have missed it a little bit. I’m going to do everything I can to put 110% effort into the car and preparation to close this year out on a positive note. I’m really motivated to get that done for our BetMGM team.
