What do you think of ORP?
I have never been to ORP, but I guess it’s more of an Irwindale (Calif.) type race track. Kind of more of a circle short track so I’m looking forward to going there and racing. We ran at Concord (N.C.) Motorsports Park in the Hooters Pro Cup earlier this year and won the race
