What are your thoughts about going to New Hampshire this weekend?

“I haven’t been there in a few years, so it’ll be different going back this time with them not applying the resin or PJ1 to the top groove. That’s a little bit different than what was there the last time I raced there (in 2020). I’ve definitely been talking with a lot of guys and trying to decipher through notes. I feel like JGR has been very good there the last few years, so I’m looking forward to getting there and trying to figure out our car in practice and hopefully start up front and have a good race this weekend.”
