In His Words

No. 98 U.S. CONCRETE / CURB HONDA

“The end of our season has been much stronger than the results have showed and heading into the season finale, a double-points race, it’s really important to myself and the U.S. Concrete team to end 2019 on a high-note. We had a decent test at Laguna Seca earlier in the year and the track holds a lot of my family history. It’s an iconic venue and it’s one of [Bryan] Herta’s best tracks from his career, so I have the right guy in my corner this weekend, for sure.”
