Quotable:

“I always look forward to Phoenix. Wild Horse Pass is always a really good race track this time of year; you can really throw down. Not to mention, my Top Fuel career essentially started in Phoenix. I got my Top Fuel license there back at the beginning of 2008, the start of my nitro career, so lots of great memories at that track, and I’m looking forward to making a lot of new ones there. We always have a lot of great Matco Tools distributor support in Phoenix, and I’m looking forward to my tool truck ride and seeing a lot of our great Matco customers. Just ready to get out there and make it happen. Looking forward to starting our season off right with a good showing in Phoenix. Pomona didn’t go the way we had planned, but it’s time to rebound. I’m reenergized, refueled, pumped-up, and ready to get out there with my team. We’re going to go out there, be competitive, and have some fun.”
