“We made great, consistent runs and gained some serious points even though we didn’t take home the win in Vegas. To say I’m looking forward to this next race would be an understatement. We came close to putting our Bandero Supra in the winner’s circle the last time we were in Charlotte, and with the way everything has been coming together so far this year, I like our chances this weekend.”
