“Coming down to the final race of the season, I look back at our performance this year grateful for the lessons learned. We had the car to beat for most of the season. There’s definitely more on the table. Our team doesn’t quit and we will continue to do what it takes to make it happen. Hopefully, we can go some rounds on Sunday and end the season on a strong note. The goal is to finish as high up in the rankings as possible.”
