How is racing at Daytona (International Speedway) in July different than February?
"Each superspeedway race this season we've had really cool temperatures. In the Nationwide Series we're still able to tandem draft, therefore the cooler temperatures allow us to draft for much longer, giving us a greater benefit. Where it really pays off and you break away from the pack is by being able to do it for multiple laps. When we go back this week, we probably won't be able to hold the tandem draft as long. If you can't do that you'll see a lot more pack racing, making it a different complexion of a superspeedway race."

What do you have to do special to stay cool in Daytona?
"Be lucky or wear your lucky socks... Superspeedway racing is always about making it to the end. There's so little that depends on handling. The draft is such an equalizer, so as long as you have the basics of a good motor and body you have a shot to win. Namesake comes into play, those who are known to be there at the end will always have someone to go with them. For someone like myself it's always a chess match, you have to make friends throughout the race in order to be in contention."
