Johanna on Driving at Kansas Speedway- “I’m really anxious to get back in the seat at Kansas Speedway. It is tough watching the Nationwide Series from behind the scenes, but it just makes you that much more eager to do well when you’re back at the track. The ML Motorsports team had a strong run at our last race, which took place at Kentucky. I hope to continue the progression at Kansas and have another strong finish for the ML Motorsports team.”
