"We've been on quite a roll lately in KONI Challenge competition. Two races ago Billly Johnson (my co-driver) and I finished third at Barber Motorsports Park. Then we finished second at Le Circuit de Trois Rivieres. As we headed into Miller Motorsports Park a couple of weeks ago, the hope was high that we could continue moving up the podium steps.
"Well, as some of you may have heard, the No. 61 ROUSH/Valvoline Mustang did win the KONI Challenge event at Miller Motorsports Park on September 18. It was great to get the first win both for myself in the KONI Challenge, as well as the first win for our new Horsepower Ranch team. The guys on the team have worked very hard all year, and though we've been running very well a number of times, small (and often hard to prevent) mechanical failures stopped our run short or prevented us from running as fast as we were able. Lately, we've seemed to work through all those gremlins and the car has been fast - and reliable - on the racetrack."
