“Our Bandero Toyota GR Supra runnered-up here last year, so we know we’ve got the right set up to be successful at this event. I’ve been so close to winning a four-wide event many times, and it’s just one of those things that I really want to cross off the list. Not to mention, our team is so overdue for a win. We’ve made considerable improvements at our last two races and I feel confident that we will continue to improve upon our program and keep everything moving along in the right direction.”
