From the Cockpit:

Christopher Bell: “I had a great showing there last year and I’ve always enjoyed Watkins Glen. I’m looking forward to Watkins Glen, I like the fast places. There’s a ton of lap time to be made through the inner loop, the technique to go through it, the ability of your car to jump over the curbs and land and be able to change direction, it takes a lot to be good there.”
