“Sonoma is a great track, and I’ve had some prior success there. Haven’t gotten a win there yet but we’re very much capable of getting our first Sonoma win this weekend, and it would be especially awesome to put our Bandero Tequila Supra in the winner’s circle on National Tequila Day. I’ve been to the semifinals quite a few times there, including last year. It’ll be nice to get back to a sea-level track and I have no doubt we’re going to throw down some good numbers, and just keep cracking away at it.”
