“Coming off of a final round appearance, heading to Las Vegas four-wides has given our team the extra boost of confidence that we definitely needed. Four-wide races have been fairly successful events for us in the past. We learned a lot this past weekend and we’ll continue to build upon that. We’re back in the Mission #2Fast2Tasty Challenge. We won the inaugural race last year so we’re happy to have another crack at a Mission Foods trophy this weekend.”
