What are your thoughts heading into this weekend's Daytona 500 with your new CAT Racing team at RCR?
"I am really looking forward to it, especially seeing how fast we have been running so far here in Daytona. I feel it's a privilege to have the opportunity to be a part of an organization that has been so successful in so many ways and on so many levels. I have had three heroes as race car drivers growing up. They were Richard Petty, A.J. Foyt and Dale Earnhardt. The point about Dale Earnhardt was a lot of people that are still at RCR had an influence and were a part of so many great championships. Those championships happened because Earnhardt could beat the competition before he ever got to the race track. That's our chore or our task to replicate that and have every organization out there fearing us when we show up at the track. As a member of this RCR team, I look forward to the next couple of days of racing. It's all about having fun. If I can see that checkered flag before everybody else, then it's a good day. It will make the start to 2014 so much better."

What does winning the 50th Daytona 500 mean to you?
"It was such a special day for so many reasons especially when you look at the history of NASCAR. I joined a prestigious group of drivers like Dale Earnhardt, Richard Petty and Buddy Baker. I always thought if I was going to amount to anything in NASCAR, I would need to win the Daytona 500. I did and let me tell you, winning that race meant, and still means, a lot."
