From the Driver’s Seat: 

JOE GRAF JR.: “Our team at JGR ran a solid race last weekend at Fontana. We had the No. 19 CoverSeal Toyota GR Supra in the top-15 most of the night and were just one spot shy of the top-10. I feel good about our chances this weekend. I have a good bit of experience at Las Vegas and with the car that Jason and the guys had last week, I think we can have an impressive showing on Saturday.”
