Quote
“Kansas is going to be one of those tracks where we learn a lot about how much we have progressed. We made huge gains on our mile-and-a-half program in the second half of 2016 and that really paid off in those last four or five races so hopefully we’ll see that we’ve carried that over.
“I’m happy with how we’ve run to start this season. Between the work that is going on at GMS Fabrication and the effort Joe (Shear, crew chief) and the Allegiant team put in, there’s no reason that we shouldn’t get a win or two over the next few weeks.”
