“Looking forward to the Four-Wide Nationals in Vegas and getting back out there this weekend. These last few races our Matco Tools/Lucas Oil/Toyota Top Fuel dragster has been firing on all eight cylinders and I’m really excited. Four-wide races always bring a lot of excitement and the fans always show up and show out. I’m looking forward to this weekend’s ‘battle royale’ where we can really just let it hang loose. The weather is looking good, we’re feeling really good, and we’re all super pumped to get back on the race track.”
