“Since they reconfigured Phoenix, that dogleg is pretty unique and how you cut across it on some of the restarts. Phoenix is really fun. I have always liked going out there. I think most of the people in the garage do because typically you have great weather. We go out there in April and November and it’s beautiful.”
