What are your thoughts on racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:
"Las Vegas has been a good track for us the past couple years. We haven't won, but I feel like we can every time I roll through the tunnel in Turn 2 to enter the track. The pavement is wearing and the track is gaining more and more character with the high frequency bumps and grip level going away. Track position is important as always, but it is a track where multiple groves come in and you can pass more easily than other tracks."

Seen on the scene?:
"I'm not a gambler, so the casinos don't matter to me that much. But, there are some great restaurants we take advantage of while we're in town."
