What are your thoughts on road racing?
"I love Road America. I have loved it since I went there with Rusty (Wallace) for the first time in a stock car. I have been there a bunch in old sports cars and open wheel. It is one of my favorite road courses in America and actually the world. We are going there with guns loaded and plan on being really strong at Road America."

What is the toughest turn at Road America?
"I think the toughest corner that nobody talks about is Turn 5. Its downhill, which is an all-brake zone, with a hard left that is all uphill to another hard corner. A lot of passing happens between Turn 5 and Turn 6 and a lot of the wrecks you will see happen there, as well."

Do you have to be on offense or defense at a road course?
"It just depends on where you are in the corner, if you are in the lead you better play a little defense. But, if you are in a pack of cars you have to try and pass the guy in front of you and take advantage. If you have a guy right on your bumper, you first need to know who you are racing,.If you are racing someone who has a lot of road course experience, then you can breathe a little easier. But, if it is someone that doesn't have a lot of road course experience, you have to be prepared for them to lock up the brakes or slide too far and make a mistake."
