We are heading to Bristol Motor Speedway. Do you enjoy short track racing?
"I enjoy Bristol Motor Speedway. I enjoyed the last NASCAR Nationwide Series race there. I don't know what to expect for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series cars because there is so much horsepower in that little bullring. In the Nationwide cars, I felt like it took me about two years to get the hang of it. During my fourth race I felt like that was the best race I have had, so experience will be big at Bristol Motor Speedway. We'll just have to learn. We have those rookie stripes on the back and it will be one of those places where you just have to stay in the race the whole time and fight until the end."

How much has Bristol Motor Speedway changed? Is the groove still right up there next to the outside wall?
"Yeah, the groove is almost like the Darlington Speedway line now. You've got to get up there in it. If the car will rotate, it is nice to be able to cut underneath someone so that's what you kind of work on, if you can just kind of work a lane below those guys, it's nice."

Is it frustrating as a driver working a lane below and having to take 10 to 15 laps, sometimes more, to pass someone that is able to keep your momentum off on the outside lane?
"It definitely wears on you. You almost put a slide on them, like in a dirt car. It's frustrating because you're working and you know your car is faster than them, but there is not much you can do to pass them, even if you are faster. You do have to stay patient, make the move when it counts and track position will be huge."
