This will be your sixth truck race at the Monster Mile, what do you like about racing at Dover? "I just love the concrete race tracks. Dover is a man's track -- you separate the men from the boys when you go to Dover. It takes a lot of guts to dive off into turn one wide open at that place. I'm looking forward to competing for a race win and battling all those guys at the front."

You're a three-time winner in Dover, what are the track conditions throughout race weekend? "Dover gains grip with more rubber to start with, then goes back the other way and loses grip. When we take my Tundra out to qualify, the track will be in fairly good shape, but when we go to race, the track is starting to lose grip at that point."
