Do you enjoy racing at the Magic Mile?
"New Hampshire Motor Speedway has always been a good track for me, which is why I consider it to be one of my favorite tracks on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series circuit. It's the place where I scored my first Cup win. I've found a way to be fastest on both Fridays and Sundays. I also enjoy the Modified races here and will compete in that event, as well. It's going to be a very busy weekend for me, but it will be a lot of fun. I really enjoy the area and the fans are great. New Hampshire is always a place I look forward to going back to each year."

When looking at the Chase grid you are eighth in points, but a win will help secure your place in the Chase with just eight races remaining. Where do you like your chances?
"If you look at my resume, you can't argue about my chances at Loudon. My first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series win came there. It's a place where I have the most wins in my career. Loudon is the place where I believe I can score my first victory with RCR and the No. 31 Caterpillar Chevrolet team. I also like my chances at Indy and Pocono. I think those places can be special for us, too. Ultimately we try and win at all the races, but this sport is so competitive and it's difficult to get to victory lane and even tougher to get there multiple times. This Caterpillar team just needs to stay focused and keep doing what we are doing. Kentucky was big for us to be able to get that ice breaker of a top-five out of the way. You really can't expect to win a race by running 11th, 10th and seventh. But when you are in the top three, you are proving that you have a chance. I believe that's the direction this team is headed and to look for a similar run this weekend in Loudon."
