“The car is good. It is running well. We are doing like we should just basically protecting the car, staying out of trouble. I have got to say, I have been running this race for over a decade and it is pretty crazy out there right now. I mean stupid stuff where I literally have to stop and go to first gear in the chicane sometimes. It’s nuts.”

OBVIOUSLY RUNNING IN THE TOP-FIVE RIGHT NOW IN FOURTH-PLACE CAN YOU TALK ABOUT MAYBE HOW YOU FEEL YOUR PROSPECTS ARE AT THIS POINT?

“I would say as far as the Chevy powered cars, I feel confident we are among the best there. I feel fairly confident with the Fords. I still think the BMW’s really have the legs on us on the straight. If you don’t you have to really run through the corners hard and get a heck of a run out to be able to even try and run with them. It’s going to be tough, but we have seen a ton of cars go out already. You never know we have a long way to go. Not even half way.”

TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT IT HAS BEEN LIKE TO DRIVE WITH A NEW TEAM HERE THIS YEAR:

“Well I drove for Brumos for a long time and Action Express for the last couple of years. The GAINSCO car has always been fast. It has always a desirable car to be in and the guys have been very welcoming. A great group of guys, I’ve known them all for several years now and raced against them. I was happy to be asked to come to it. For me power wise the Chevy, aero wise the Corvette body I was used to that from last year. The thing that is different is I’m back in a Riley which is what I ran for many years prior to the Coyote last year. It’s very nice to be in a Riley, great handling car. I actually feel that it is easier to drive at a competitive pace for a long period. I think it is better for the long races for sure.”
