“Texas for whatever reason has been good to me. There are great fans down in that area and it’s a really cool area, but I’ve been around long enough that I’m not much of a sightseeing guy anymore. I like to go to the track and hang out and focus on winning the race.”

 

“The track itself is a lot different. You have to be disciplined and not over drive Turn One. Turns Three and Four race a lot like it used to but Turn One and Two is probably what’s got everyone caught off guard a little bit. You used to be able to run wide open there for quite a while with the old configuration. Now you’re lucky if you can even do it qualifying with the way Turns One and Two are. It’s fun though, I like having to lift and drive a little bit.”
