It definitely hasn’t been the year the 29 crew wanted or deserved, but Long Beach is one of my favorite tracks, and street courses have been strong for us this year. We’re looking forward to a great race. It’s been amazing to represent Capstone and Genesys this year, as well drive for George and Michael and the entire Andretti Steinbrenner Racing team. I would love nothing more than to bring home some hardware and end the season on a high note.”

We have one more shot this season and I’m hoping to have a good, straight-forward weekend in Long Beach to put together a solid result. I love Long Beach – love the city, love the track. I’ve had a lot of special moments there over the years, including my first win with Andretti Autosport. It’d be really nice to finish things out the way it began and end my time with the team with a win at a track that feels like home.”
