DD Quote: "I'm really excited to go out west and have the opportunity to gain some experience on a road course. Chevrolet gave me the chance to learn at Ron Fellows driving school in Nevada earlier this year, but that is my only road racing experience so far. We go to Mid Ohio and Watkins Glen with our GMS team later this season, so it's important for me to build on the notebook this weekend. I'm confident BMR and Travis Sharpe will have a fast race car for me on Saturday."
