Will Owen – Driver
“I’m very excited to be racing in Detroit for the first time. This is a really cool track, and I’ve watched it on TV for several years and have worked with it on the simulator so I cannot wait to get out there. There are a lot of tricky corners, and it definitely takes a lot of commitment, and you have to be close to the wall. Those are all great things that will make it fun. When you figure these kinds of tracks out it can be awesome.
I have tons of confidence in Juncos Racing right now, and I think the car has made some improvements over the past month or two. I’m excited to see those changes and how we can perform here in Detroit.”
