What do you think about Indianapolis Motor Speedway?
"Everybody knows how prestigious this race is and just being a part of it with Mycogen Seeds was huge last year, and we get to come back with them this year, too. I'm excited to have a good run. I feel like we have a little momentum going into this race. We've been running a little better as of late on the ovals, so I'm definitely looking forward to Indy. Hopefully it will cut the learning curve in half and we can rely on some of our notes and what we've done in the past to make our car better, so hopefully that plays out for us. It's a really special track and I have a lot of fond memories there walking down pit road with my grandfather and watching races from the Pagoda. I remember him being perched up there watching his cars, so it's so cool now that I have a chance to add to that history. To become the fourth driver from Richard Childress Racing to win and to do it my first year in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series would be crazy. It would definitely be an amazing experience."
