Buescher on Racing at Vegas:
“We had a good day last fall at Vegas, and outside of that have been pretty consistent in the other two races there lately. It’s a fast track and one that we feel good about going in. We’re proud to help welcome Violet Defense to the sport and look forward to kicking things off right with their team this weekend out West.”
