From the Cockpit:

Christopher Bell: “I love going up to New Hampshire Motor Speedway, it’s been a really good racetrack for me in the past. The track is really unique in the fact that turns one and two are really smooth, three and four are very rough, it’s very flat everywhere but has a little more banking running up the track in lane two and three, there’s no where else in the country that’s like it.”
