What are your thoughts on Michigan International Speedway?
"Racing for RCR, we expect Michigan to be a good place for us. We have good aero and engine packages, so you know those things will help make our Chevrolet Camaro's run well. I miss what the track use to be, old and worn out. It was definitely more fun when you had the Michigan merge, where the guy at the bottom and the guy at the wall would come together, but I think if we just give it some time, the old track will come back. I really can't complain how the track is now though, it is so fast. The fans definitely get the speed out of their system when they come to watch these races."

How far along in the weekend will it take for you to figure out the grooves of the track?
"The bad part is that us Nationwide drivers normally don't find multiple grooves as much as the Cup cars. The groove typically widens out quite a bit for the Cup race, but I am hopeful that by the Nationwide race we will have multiple grooves, or at least a second one to choose from."
