DD Weekend Quote: “I'm looking forward to this weekend and the opportunity to race at two completely different style racetracks. I learned a lot at Mid Ohio and am ready to use those notes for Friday at The Glen and see how all that goes. And Springfield is something I have absolutely zero experience with, being a flat one-mile dirt track, so hopefully we can get out of there with a solid finish and learn for DuQuoin.”
