Josh Wise on Sonoma
“Sunday was only the second career road course event that I’ve raced in my whole career, and my first career road course race in a Sprint Cup Series car. I know it will take some time to get used to, but I’m pleased with the progress our team made this weekend. We got faster and faster as the race and the weekend went on. As long as you are moving in the right direction, you know you are doing something positive. We finished the race in a respectable position and with a racecar that is in one piece. Overall, I’m happy with both of those items. I hope to build off of this start as I move forward in my career”
