Looking forward to getting on the ground in Charlotte tomorrow to get my first look at the new Mooresville facility. Should be a great weekend all around, and I know that I’m excited to be back on the trackside PA again for the Grand Nationals. I had a blast with the event staff in South Bend last year and look forward to doing all again this year in North Carolina.
Can’t wait to see how Team USA stacks up for the Grand Finals!
