“The Bommarito Automotive Group 500 was a fun one. It was a little up and down for us starting second and moving back. We were all over the place at some points so it was definitely a rollercoaster ride, but we were still able to finish in the top 10. Now, we just move forward from here, and I’m ready to get out to Portland.”
