Share your thoughts on racing at Kansas Speedway?
"Mile-and-a-half tracks have always been my forte. I didn't get to run this race last year, so this will be my first race at Kansas Speedway since they repaved it. I've been told that the track is smooth and it has a progressive banking, which makes it similar to Las Vegas Motor Speedway. I love racing these fast 1.5-mile tracks. This will be my first 1.5-mile race back with Shane Wilson (crew chief), so I'm hoping we remember how to do this."
