Busch Quotes for week leading up to racing at Dover International Speedway

Running three races in three days must take a toll on the body. What do you do to prepare? Is it year 'round?

"It's pretty much year round and I try to do what I can to stay healthy to keep up on the workout regiment and stuff. Everyday I'm home I normally work out two hours, whether it's in the morning or at night. I try to eat as healthy as I can just trying to stay fit. In all that respect, for me it's not too demanding on the body. There was a time last year where we ran three weekends in a row I think with the three races, and so it wasn't too bad, I was okay actually. Mondays and Tuesdays getting back up I feel pretty good so I guess it's working."

Of all the trophies you've earned so far this year, where would the Dover Monster trophy rate?

"It'd be pretty cool. I've won at Dover before in the Truck Series but they didn't have the monster trophy there yet, so I didn't get to take home that one. But it'd be pretty cool. I think we've got a great shot in all three series to try and take home one and we'll see how it goes. But I feel like the Cup race for me there has always been a great race. I think I've finished in the top-five in all but two of my races and I feel like it's a pretty good track for me. I like it a lot and the trucks are definitely going to be a good show too. (Hope) to try and go out there and win in that thing too, and just keep the streak going."
