Quotes:

On Eldora:

“Eldora is definitely not a race that I look forward to every year. When I grew up we didn’t do any dirt racing and we didn’t go to dirt races. I’m 40 now, so it’s like teaching an old dog new tricks. It’s tough. It’s fun, it’s a great atmosphere and there are always a lot of fans there, but it’s tough and I just wish I knew what I was doing. It’s a little different deal, but we’ll make the best out of it.”

On New Hampshire:

“I had a lot of fun running the No. 23 back in Dover. I appreciate ISM Connect and Mike (Beam) giving me another shot at it. Chad (Norris, crew chief) and that team have fast cars and the improvements that have been made to that program over the last year are incredible. It makes it really easy to get back in a car after so long when you can do it with a team that runs well and has the ability to win.”
