Very very much I think it will be – these four drivers are incredibly talented going to be the ultimate penalty shootout  »

“And definitely, part of a big effort overall from Chevrolet here in the past two years to bring these teams together, specifically the Childress groups and Hendrick and Ganassi, and get everyone to work together on different initiatives, different projects, and talk to each other I think what happened Here in the past eight or nine weeks it has been the culmination so there has been a lot of work together to achieve this goal of getting the car to Phoenix ”
