“Last race of the season, we’re going to go in with our heads down and give it everything we’ve got. The NHRA Finals have always been really good to us. In 2012, we won the championship but this year, we just want to go out there and end the last race of the year on a high note and take our Matco Tools ‘Test Drive’ car one round at a time and see if we can end the season by parking it in the winner’s circle.”
