Quote: “Las Vegas is usually really smooth and fast and it’s a lot of fun to drive. We had a very good run in the spring, but came up just short. It would be awesome to go out and get a win, especially in the Gallagher family’s backyard. I’m pumped to have CMR on board with us for more races. We won Canada for their first race with us, and hopefully we’ll have more trips to Victory Lane with them this season. Not many sponsors get a win in their first race with a new team.”
