Matt Kurzejewski on racing at Lucas Oil Raceway:
“The Ansell-Menards team had a very good test there a few weeks ago, the track is wide and very racy which will make for a great show.”
“There is a lot of history at and around Lucas Oil Raceway, you’re right down the street from the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The entire city is just a neat atmosphere and it would be cool to win in Indianapolis.”
