“Bandimere Speedway is always a challenging track for everyone, but we’re looking forward to rising to that challenge. I’ve won there a few times, and that’s always been a great event for our Matco Tools team. We have a very strong Matco presence there, and I’m looking forward to getting back on ‘the mountain’ and conquering the rock. It’s hard to conquer the rock, but we’ve done it before. We’re going in with our heads down and ready to give it our all. We want to start our Western Swing off on the right foot. We were very fortunate in 2009 to be able to ‘sweep the Swing.’ We’ve got two nighttime qualifying sessions on Friday and Saturday, and the fans always show out, so we like to show out on the race track for them.”
