“I think one of the biggest challenges with Las Vegas Motor Speedway would be the bumps in turn one. That seems to be what everybody talks about as soon as we get on-track. Being able to get though those quickly and not upsetting the car much is key. Kyle (Larson) and the No. 42 team went out there to test a few weeks ago. I think it was key to try and get a baseline from where we were last year. With the new body and the new rules that we have, you have to adjust the setup based on this new body versus last year’s. I think they learned all of that fairly quick on the first day which was beneficial.”
