“Our DC Motorsports team had a good outing in Bristol last weekend. Sunday was hot and demanding, and we showed that we have a race car that can perform well in those types of conditions. It feels good knowing we have a solid hot weather tune-up. We have a good baseline to work off of and that should serve us well this weekend and at these next several races we have coming up. Last year in Norwalk we made it to the semis, so the goal is to take it one round further this weekend, and hopefully we’ll finish Sunday with our Bandero Toyota Supra in the winner’s circle.”
