“Denver is always one of the toughest races on the circuit. I’ve had great success there in the past. Our Matco Tools team has been hard at work on our combination, we’ve been testing and we’ve been making some good power so I’m anxious to see what we can do with that power up there on the mountain.

“With this being the last race at Bandimere, we definitely want to go out with a bang and finish Sunday with a trophy in our hands at the top of that mountain. Very excited to get there, we’re expecting a big turnout from our local Matco Tools and FVP folks coming out, so we’re looking forward to getting back to Denver one last time and seeing what we can do.”
