Quotable:
“I’m looking forward to going to Gainesville. It’s always been a track that’s special to me. I remember it like it was just yesterday, back in 1998 when I started my NHRA career on a Pro Stock Motorcycle in Gainesville.

“This race brings a lot of light to our series right now to be able to leave Indy and continue our stretch to race for a championship. With this being the start of us going on the road, I’m very pumped up, very amped, and am looking forward to making some special things happen with our Matco Tools/Global Electronic Technology/Toyota/Hangsterfer’s dragster, and I can’t wait to get to the Gators.”
