Are you looking forward to Richmond after getting so close last time there?
"Yeah, I'm really looking forward to Richmond. I try not to be overly confident just based on a run that we had there. There are some things that are going to be different when we go back. Goodyear is bringing a different tire. Everybody thinks you keep the exact same thing in there that you had last fall and you go to town and it will work. But in the spring race, the weather is different. The time of the race is different, we race during the day, we have a different tire so even if we do everything the same we can go there and we can struggle. It's not just automatic that we are going to be as dominant as we were in the fall. I'm excited because of the last experience we had there and almost winning the race, but I also am not going to take anything for granted. I'm going to make sure I do my normal pre-race ritual. I'm going to study notes and I'm going to work just as hard as I always have there to try to have another good run."

Is there anything that compares to the way Richmond drives?
"I think turn 1 at that track is the most difficult entry for a driver of anywhere that you go. It just has a feeling of it being so big; it's really hard to kind of decide what line you take in there. You almost get lost coming in there. To figure out what line you need for your car and to do it over and over on a consistent basis, I think it's the most difficult corner in all of the race tracks we go to. That is one thing I felt like we were able to really do well when we were there last fall, and we almost won race. I know going back just figuring out turns 1 and 2 is huge. It seems like that corner kind of dictates your race, at least in my experience for Richmond."
