"Winning any NASCAR Nextel Cup Series event is an accomplishment. The sport is so competitive today. If you ask drivers which races they would put at the top of their list for a win, I'm sure most would say the Daytona 500 and the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard. The Daytona 500 is the cornerstone of our sport. Indianapolis Motor Speedway is the ultimate racing venue. To join the list of Indy winners would be awesome.

"Indy is a great race track. There's so much history there - a lot of bragging rights. Everybody brings the best possible car, the best possible motor, everything they can possibly bring to be competitive. We have been talking about Indy a lot the past month trying to get ready for the race. The team has put in a lot of work on our Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger."
