Just watching Dempsey drive, you can see his passion for the sport. When asked about the upcoming event and his past driving experience, Dempsey commented:
“It’s just great to be back in the car,” Dempsey said. “It’s been such a long time. I’m really, really happy that I got to Miami and had that test last month. To get back here and get used to the new paving is a big thing. It’s very green, but we’re starting to get used to that. More seat time is really the most important thing coming out of this. It was really nice to see how the car has come along. I’m really, really happy with all the work the guys have done. They’ve been working really hard, long hours and they’ve just really done a fantastic job, so I really want to thank those guys.”
