LOOKING AHEAD FROM ONE TOUGH OVAL TO ANOTHER, NEXT WEEK DOVER, YOU HAD A LOT OF SUCCESS THERE. CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE TRACK? BEEN DESCRIBED AS A ROLLERCOASTER THAT'S ALSO SELF-CLEANING.

"Yeah, it's a fun racetrack. I think it's a track that really suits my style, and the stats show that. There's a certain rhythm there. You have to be comfortable with typically the racecar at least into the corner, then you have to figure out somehow to make it turn the center, fight forward grip up off the corner to run a good lap there. The rubber, I understand we're going back to the same tire as we had there in the fall. That tire laid a lot of rubber down and caused a lot of handling issues for teams. We did a good job of working around that. So I'm excited going back. I think it will be a strong race for the Lowe's team."
