What are your thoughts heading to Atlanta?
"Atlanta is one of the more exciting race tracks we go to. When tires are new, they're fast, but they wear out so much. In the Nationwide Series, you don't have enough sets of tires for the race. So you really have to extend a run, stay out on old tires that have no grip when you don't want to. When you have new tires and other people don't, you really can feel like a superhero. It makes it exciting. You definitely have to manage the race there more than anywhere else. As a driver, as a team, you have to manage your tires and you have to manage the outcome of the race. When to pit, and strategy can mix a lot of things up. This is one of the more interesting and exciting races of the whole year."

How much does Atlanta change each time you go back to the track?
"I think Atlanta has almost aged to the point where it's not changing much. It seems like the new tracks with the new pavement are aging from year-to-year a lot more than the old ones. The old ones seem like they have kind of leveled out. Atlanta really depends on how hot and how slick it is. It's a temperature sensitive track. And, it's a track where your first lap out in practice - you've got to know what you're doing. You have to know your marks because from one lap to the second lap, you'll fall off a quarter of a second and it can really shake up the practice charts. As a driver, if you don't know what you need to do and where your marks are, you can end up chasing the car and chasing false things all practice because you're off a little bit."
