What are your thoughts on racing at Talladega Superspeedway?
"Talladega is one of those tracks that is a necessary evil on our race schedule especially considering my history at the track. But, it's like any other track where it provides you with a legitimate chance and opportunity to win. I just have to figure out a so-called antitoxin to stop getting snake bit there because it happens to me more often than any one there."

What are your impressions of the new qualifying format at the Superspeedway?
"I have mixed feelings about it. In a way, it doesn't feel like qualifying. Instead, it's a race in itself for a starting position and it's impacted by the quantity of cars you have within your organization. To me, it's more of a show for television and the fans in the stands who come out and watch. If that's good for the sport, then it's good for all of us."
