Quotable:
“Really looking forward to Sonoma. We’ve got something we can worth with. We’ve got a good engine combo that’s going to repeat for us, and we’re looking forward to competing at a high level. We’ve always done well in Sonoma; we’re back to sea level, and this is going to be our time to, hopefully, go out there and shine, and show ‘em what we’re made of. We’re so close to making great things happen, and we’re going to keep pushing hard, and I think Sonoma is definitely going to be that race for us.”
