How has the 1.5-mile program been for Richard Childress Racing?
"The 1.5-mile program is looking better and better. You can definitely see a bump in our performance with the new Chevrolet Camaros that Richard Childress Racing is putting together. The No. 33 team and Menard earned a win at Michigan and we all finished well at Kentucky Motor Speedway; we expect to keep that momentum going."

Why is Chicagoland Speedway a favorite 1.5-mile track for drivers?
"Chicago is a different 1.5-mile track than the rest because both corners are increasing radius corners, which makes it easier to drive than the other mile and half tracks. There is an arc to the back straightaway, but you still want and try to drive somewhat of a straight line."
