“We always look forward to going to Norwalk, especially with it being the home and the headquarters of Matco Tools right there in Stow, so really excited to get out there and get to their hometown race. We have all of the people from Matco’s corporate office coming out, a lot of Matco distributor participation. And, it’s also the home track for Summit Racing, and we always look forward to going out and visiting all of the people from Race Winning Brands. We’re energized, ready to go. Coming off of the weekend we had in Richmond, Virginia has us feeling motivated. Our car is running well, our team is really jelling, we can run in the hot conditions, and we can run good when the track gets better too. Super happy about that, and really focused on the prize. Ready to have some fun out there this weekend with my crew chief Brian Corradi and Master’s Pizza, and Corradi’s Scoops. We’re going to have a lot of pizza and ice cream to celebrate with, and we’re looking forward to a great weekend.”
