My goal is to run a competitive and smart pace being ready for whatever this course throws at us, because in desert racing anything can happen and all we can do is be prepared the best way possible. Taking on the task of driving the entire race is going to be the toughest task I’ve ever challenged myself with and but with the incredible team we have behind us, I couldn’t be in a better position to make it a reality and get the championship we all desire” said Price.

Heading into this one with the points lead and Sara driving the entire race we have our work cut out for us, but we do a lot of homework, so we’ll have to take it as it comes.” said Sacks
