On being in contention for the championship... "I think we've had a great season, but we can't look too far ahead. We still have half of a season of racing left, so I want to take it week by week. I'm really proud of my entire team for all their hard work this year, and have to thank NET10 Wireless and OtterBox for their continued support."

On tackling the 'Tricky Triangle'... "The 'Tricky Triangle' is a good name for the place. Getting through the tunnel turn seems to be the most difficult part, where I think the race is won or lost. If you can get through that turn with no hiccups you are bound to make a great lap."
