Hamlin Conversation – Kansas
What are your thoughts on racing Kansas this weekend?
“Kansas has been a great track for us the past few years, so I’m looking forward to this weekend. I’m excited about how our 11 team ran and how well Toyota ran as a manufacturer there last year with all the JGR cars up front. We feel like this is an opportunity for us to put ourselves in contention and we’ll just have to execute all day to give ourselves a chance.”
