Follow @austindillon3 on Twitter every Wednesday for the #ALLin Challenge.

What are your thoughts on racing at Kansas Speedway?
"At the beginning of the year, we sat down as a team and talked about goals and expectations for the year. Kansas Speedway is one of the tracks I circled as a place I think this No. 3 team can win. I've always loved the track. Mile-and-a-halves have been my strong suit in the past. We were able to test at Kansas Speedway a few weeks ago and I learned a lot. Restarts will be important during the race."
