What are you thoughts on racing in the Sprint Showdown?
"The (Sprint) Showdown and All-Star weekend is always a good one since there are no points on the line. We can just race hard, have fun and gather some information for the Coca-Cola 600. A lot of families come out to watch during the Charlotte race weekends, so hopefully we can put the Serta / Menards Chevrolet into the All-Star race and put on a good show."
