After that, he talked about his tough run in the first stages and how they handled it, The MnM Camery has really been running hard, we are trying hard and we are running ok but it seemed like we are not there.

“However, the last couple of adjustments really helped us to do a great job, helping the car, making it better.”

Additionally, he doubled down on the struggle that he has been facing during the 2020 season, “But overall its just 4th, 5th, 6th, 2nd places this year. What can you do, you just gotta keep doing.
