Did you learn anything about the new car at Las Vegas Motor Speedway that you can use at Auto Club Speedway?
"I don't think so. I think you have two totally different styles of track between Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Auto Club Speedway. You'll take the same family of car that we would race at Las Vegas to California, but that is really the only similarity. Auto Club Speedway has become pretty worn out over the last several years. It's a lot of fun to race on and move around, you can go four or five wide in the corners and down the straightaways. You just have to really pay attention to what your car is doing, to try and get it balanced throughout the whole run because there is so much fall off from start to finish."

Why do you think Auto Club Speedway has been such a good track for you throughout the years?
"We've just figured some things out there, where I want to be on the race track and the team has learned what I'm looking for in the car. To be able to go to a race track where you expect to race for the win is always fun. It seems like year after year you go to different styles of race tracks and the evolution of the car or the setups or tires change. Sometime you're on and sometimes you're off, but is seems like Auto Club Speedway has been a very consistent race track for us to be competitive."
