From the Cockpit:

Christopher Bell: “Vegas is one of the most temperamental racetracks. If you go there and it’s cold there is a lot of grip and it races really fast, when it’s hot and sunny it’s really slick and slippery, it changes a lot with temperature. Vegas has some rough bumps in one and two, which will be a rough ride in the Next Gen car. It’s a place you can move around, it’s a fun racetrack. We have the same high speed rules package from Fontana so teams can take what they learned there for this weekend.”
