DD Quote: "I'm truly excited to get up to Mid Ohio on Friday and see what that place is all about. Portland was so much fun and I feel like we'll be able to translate some of what we learned there for Friday and when we go to Watkins Glen later this year. It'll also be great to have the Champion Container colors on our GMS Chevy for the first time this season."
