What do you think about Charlotte Motor Speedway?
"I'm excited about the last four tracks we've got on the schedule. I've always had a really good record on mile-and-a-half tracks, but Charlotte Motor Speedway has been a bit difficult for me in the past. We tested there last week, and I think that was good for me, and our RCR team."
