“The conditions look fabulous for Epping. After a hot weekend in Joliet, it’ll be nice to return to some cooler weather, especially for that Friday night throwdown session. We ran well in Epping last year and our team is excited to head back up that way. We’re back to our Leatherwood colors this weekend and loving the look, so I’m ready to get back up there and hopefully we can enjoy a long Sunday of going rounds.”
