“I’m stoked about heading to Phoenix this weekend. We gained a lot of momentum from our 10th-place run at Anaheim last weekend. We’ve had a good week of practice and we’re heading to one of my favorite tracks on the circuit. Phoenix is my favorite race of the season. I love the crowds. I love the dirt because it’s hard packed and it really fits my style of racing. It’s just a cool place. We need to start strong, bang out some laps and run hard at the end.” -Josh Hansen (No.100 Dodge/Sycuan Casino/Hart and Huntington/Bel-Ray Racing)
