What are your thoughts on Kentucky Speedway?
"It is the only track with that flat 1.5-mile surface, with a ton of bumps. I hope they never change it. Kentucky is one of the best tracks of that size we have left on the circuit. You get slipping and sliding with multiple grooves racing three wide. Kentucky is one of the last tracks that has my preferred style of racing. I love Kentucky and I cannot wait to get on track."
