  • Tyler's thoughts on Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez:
    "I'm really looking forward to racing in Mexico City," said Walker. "I have never raced in another country and I think it is a good opportunity for NASCAR and the sponsors to grow. I haven't competed competitively on a road course before, however I did go to the Bob Bondurant School of Racing and I think that experience will help me tremendously this weekend.

    "I think the biggest thing that I need to focus on this weekend is being cautious and knowing when to use the brakes. I know I need to race smart and score a good finish for this Great Clips team."
