Quotes:

"It's an honor that Dodge and the NHL asked me to be a part of this. I think it's neat for NASCAR, the NHL and everybody involved. I'm looking forward to it. I think we're going to have a great car. Hopefully we'll put on a good show for the fans and to have the NHL on the car will be extra special. Hopefully I won't have to ice skate because I'm not very good."
