DEREK, WHAT IS IT YOU LIKE ABOUT WHITE MOUNTAIN MOTORSPORTS PARK?
Honestly, it's probably because it's a small, short-track with a good amount of banking. I really don't like the smaller flat tracks all that much, but I always tend to run good at the short tracks with banking like White Mountain has.
It's a really racy track. The bottom is definitely the preferred way around there, but you can also work on the outside if you have to to get around people. It's a pretty fun place to race.
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS FOR THE WEEKEND?
We've been really working hard on the PASS car trying to get it ready. I'm pretty confident going into this race. It should be pretty interesting.
We're looking forward to this. It's the last race of the year for PASS North, and we'd like to go up and get a Top-3 and really finish off the year on a high note.
