What is your mindset about going to Nashville this weekend?

“We’re going there looking to win. The past few races haven’t been what we wanted on the road courses, so we need to get our momentum going back in the right direction as we hit this summer stretch. I feel like Nashville is a great place for us to do that. Our cars have been fast every single week, so I have a lot of confidence about what we will be capable of this weekend.”
