Rearview Mirror ... Brian Scott and the No. 2 Shore Lodge Chevrolet Camaro team started the Gardner Denver 200 presented by Johnsonville in the sixth position at Road America. The Shore Lodge team gambled on fuel mileage and was forced to pit in order to complete the green-white-checkered finish. After three-final laps around the 14-turn road course, Scott crossed the finish line 16th.

What are your thoughts about Kentucky Speedway? Is it getting rough?
"Kentucky has been rough. I love Kentucky though. It's been a good race track for me through the years. Normally we are pretty fast there with our ECR Engines. Last year, we had some mechanical issues because of how rough it is. I feel like RCR has good history at Kentucky and I think we know what to do to get over the bumpiness in the race track."

Is the bumpiness of the race track what makes Kentucky Speedway unique?
"Yeah, it is. It's kind of a flatter mile-and-a-half and really bumpy, but has good grip. It's really a unique race track. You really have to know how to handle through the bumps and how to drive through the bumps to be fast. For whatever reason, it normally fits my style and has been a decent race track for us."

If they were going to repave Kentucky Speedway tomorrow, would you tell them to leave it alone?
"I think we need to have a hiatus from the repaves for a little bit. Obviously, some tracks need to have it. But if there is any way around it, it would be nice to keep some race tracks on the circuit that have a lot of character."
