How comfortable are you at Darlington Raceway?
"Darlington is one of the best tracks that I have raced on; it is just so much fun. I still remember my first race there, any track you can remember just about every time you've been there. Darlington is wild and crazy. Last year we had some bad luck and blew a right front toward the end of the race, but we are excited to get back there because it is definitely my style of race track."

Why is Darlington your style of race track?
"My style is running the high groove, so getting to race right at the wall and hugging the wall makes Darlington right up my alley. The key will be to see how few times you can earn that Darlington Stripe and how gently you can stripe it when you do. It is just my style place."
