What are your thoughts on returning to Richmond?
"Richmond is great short-track racing. It always is, it always has been. I think it is the right size track with the right amount of banking and the right shape. I think those three elements create great racing."

You are one of the bubble drivers. What do you expect to see when it comes to racing and how will you race other drivers in your same situation?
"When you look at the racing last year, there is no doubt that people contending for a Chase spot were racing in a way to help their cause. I think everyone has learned a lot from what happened and the consequences of it all. I think you may see a very different Richmond this time around."
