Quotable:
“The U.S. Nationals, it’s a big, big race. This is the granddaddy of them all. It’s the last race before the Countdown and there’s a lot on the line. What we have set in front of us is to try to get the No. 2 spot back before Countdown positions are locked. Not only that, it’s important for us to have a good weekend here in Indy so we can build some momentum heading into the first race of the playoffs and make a run for a championship.”
