What are your thoughts on Chicagoland Speedway?
"Chicago has been a good race track for me in the Nationwide Series. I'm always excited when we go there. I'm disappointed with how we performed in Chicago last year. Chicago is one of my better 1.5-mile tracks and we have a package now at RCR where I feel like when we go back, I think we'll be really strong and really stout. It's one of my favorite race tracks. Being a stand-alone event, it will definitely be an opportunity to go out there and get a win for our Shore Lodge team."

What makes Chicagoland your best 1.5-mile track?
"I don't know, I've been asked that a lot. The way that the track is laid out, the way you can ride the high line. My strong suit seems to be typically, when the race gets going and the tires fall off, I'm able to work the high groove really well and make up a lot of time there. It's a fun place, I like going to Chicago. It's just a track I feel comfortable at and I have a lot of confidence when I go in. Sometimes, that's all it takes."
