      "I can’t believe we’re already at the end of our season. We’ve had some very big ups and downs, but coming to one of our best tracks for the finale while leading in points is more than we could have asked for. Mid-Ohio has been a very successful track for myself and Andretti, both separately and together, so there is a lot of confidence heading into this event."
