The History 300 is live on ABC at 2:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.

Rearview Mirror ... In Scott's last Sprint Cup Series race at Talladega Superspeedway, the No. 33 Shore Lodge Chevrolet team captured the pole position but was caught up in an accident on lap 137. Scott was relegated to a 42nd-place finish.

Charlotte Motor Speedway is where you made your Sprint Cup Series debut. You are also double duty this weekend. Are you looking forward to it? "Yeah, I'm looking forward to actually going back somewhere in a Cup car. That will be neat since I have a little bit of experience there. The Coke 600 is going to be a long race. I'm trying to mentally and physically prepare myself for that one already. I started doing that even before the Daytona 500 as really circling the 600 as the most mentally and physically tough race that I do all year and what do I need to do to be prepared. I do have some experience there, so I feel like I learned some lessons and know some things about our Chevrolet SS going there."

What do you do to prepare for a grueling 600 miler?
"You just have to train smart. You have to work out in the right way. You have got to go to somebody that can help prepare you, whether that is a trainer, a friend, somebody that is going to push you and make sure that you keep digging when you might want to stop. Luckily, I've kind of established a routine for the last three or four years of working with a trainer. We talk about when races were more physically demanding and what we could do to work on that, even things that you do in your seat. I know before the 600 I will pay extra special attention to the ergonomics inside the car and sitting in it and making sure I do that all before the race. Tweaking every little thing, maybe nitpicking it more-so than I would any other race just because it is so long and grueling. Then I think the thing that helps more than anything is if you just have a good handling race car. That will make 600 miles a lot more of a pleasure."
