Since these cars are so different, what do you learn from the XFINITY Series cars that you can translate to your Cup car?
“The biggest thing you can learn from running the XFINITY Series race that applies to Cup car is tire pressures and how low you can get or how high. Different tire compounds want different things in terms of tire pressures and cambers. You also learn what grooves work when. Kentucky will be a good test for when that middle groove starts working and coming in, and if that translates to the Cup car. Laps always help just to figure everything out.”
