Quotes:

“I never proclaim to be some road race ace. I just try to go there, do my best and not make any mistakes, and nine times out of ten we’ll get out of there with a decent finish. Canadian Tire (Motorsport Park) is a really fast road course, so I think that puts a really big emphasis on getting off Turn 5B because that’s the longest straightaway in the world to me. It’s uphill, so if you didn’t get a good run off the corner you’re going to pay the price all the way down that straightaway. I think it’s a little touch-and-go being the first playoff race, but that’s the way it is. So we’ll just make the best of it, try to stay on the track, and have a solid day.”
