What do you look forward to when you go to a place like Auto Club Speedway?
"It's a new place for me, I've never actually raced there - only just one test earlier this year in a Cup car. I had a great test and had a lot of fun, definitely looking forward to the new challenge of a new race track and what the Nationwide Series will bring as far as a challenge there. Can't wait to get there and have a new notebook on a track. We seemed to do really well there when we tested in early March."
