Race Rewind 2012 ... Burton and the No. 31 Caterpillar Racing team dealt with adversity at a number of points during the 2012 Aaron's 499, but capitalized on good fortune toward the end of the race and left Talladega Superspeedway with a 10th-place finish.

Will the race this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway be like the Daytona 500?
"It will be interesting to see what is going to happen at Talladega (Superspeedway). The Daytona 500 was very much a single-file race and there is a good chance that drivers will be more aggressive at Talladega. That was the calmest Daytona 500 I've ever been a part of and I don't anticipate seeing that at Talladega. Eventually, I think drivers will start pushing the issue a little bit more and try to make stuff happen. Single-file racing is boring in the car and boring to watch, so I think drivers will mix it up more this weekend."

What's the main difference in Talladega Superspeedway and Daytona International Speedway?
"Talladega (Superspeedway) feels bigger and wider. It feels much longer than just the .16 mile difference that it is from Daytona. The corners are a lot wider. You don't get quite the sensation leaving the straightaway and going into the corner with the banking. The one oddity is the bottom groove through the tri-oval is a different banking than the rest of the race track. When the track starts to lose grip, I feel like we are going to start seeing some incidents there because of the banking difference."
