How do you feel about making your first Nationwide Series start with RCR?
"I couldn't be happier to be part of the RCR organization and even more grateful for the opportunity to go out and prove what I've got. That's kind of the good part of it, feelin the pressure that comes into this weekend. All through my racing career, I've been thrown to the wolves and I'm OK with that happenin. I like the challenge. I'm used to this feeling from being with th World of Outlaws to the K&N Series. It's part of it, and you have to do well in order to keep moving up."

How have you prepared for this weekend?
"I've been preparing by being at the track with the No. 33 team and studying in-car footage. I've also been training and conditioning in RCR's gym to be in the best shape from flag -o-flag. It's been a whole new experience so far, and I can't wait to get on track this weekend."
