“That’s a track that puts a huge emphasis on handling and obviously, the boys at GMS have done a good job of building these trucks over the last year and a half. That’s personally what I think it is. There’s no substitute for grip at Chicago, it’s very rough and has a lot of character. You can run all over the race track and grip is ultimately what prevails. As a driver you’re used to going down the backstretch and straightening the wheel, but here you kind of always have a little bit of wheel in it. It’s different. I still remember the first time I won at Chicagoland in the Xfinity car. Obviously when you have success at a track, and with the way we ran over there the last couple of years, it just makes you feel good about it.”
