Recapping Las Vegas

Chris Buescher on racing at Phoenix International Raceway:

“Phoenix is a challenging race track.  It is different from anywhere that any of us ever grew up racing and anywhere that we’ll ever go.  It’s always a place that we go to and really have to work hard to get the car set up right, and take the balance and make it as good as possible in both corners, versus just one.  It’s going to be a tough one, but we are looking forward to getting out there.”
