Someone told me recently that they feel the smaller the track, the more patience needed. I couldn't agree more.
The racing itself will be very tight with a lot of single-file competition. It will be very similar to the NASCAR events held here at Richmond.
Track position will be very important, as will pit stops. This will not be an easy track to pass on, so every opportunity to gain positions will need to be taken.
We have not tested here, but what we are doing is starting out with two different setups between myself and my teammate, Didier Andre. We will both work together very closely this weekend to find the right setup for qualifying and the race.
As far as the fans, I think they are going to see a fantastic show Saturday night in the SunTrust Indy Challenge.
The Indy Racing Northern Light Series always puts on a great show under the lights, and racing in a bullring on Saturday night is an American tradition. That is just what we are going to do this weekend.
