Starting Position: 1st

What does it mean to have your 200th Truck Series start at Martinsville?

"I ran my very first Sprint Cup race here at Martinsville. I won a big Late Model race up here. I have a lot of great memories up here. It's kind of cool that it worked out that our 200th start will end up at Martinsville. I love this place. It's definitely a top-five race track that I love to race on."

Do you think this truck is capable of winning Saturday's race?

"I think the truck is good. Us and (Kevin) Harvick, and four or five other guys that are really, really good. If we have a good pit stop and nothing crazy happens to us, I think we have a chance. I think we have a good chance to win."

Were you happy with your qualifying run?

"I really felt like I did not get the truck in the corner as good as I had done earlier and I really didn't expect it to hold up but it did. The truck is really, really awesome. It's really awesome in race trim. It's the Iowa truck that we ran at Iowa. PC Miler Navigator is on board with us again this weekend and it's kind of a milestone for us. The 200th start deal is really no big deal. We left the series in 1997 and never came back until 2004. We ran a race here and there. I don't regret going and running in the Sprint Cup Series all of those years. I had a lot of fun and had some success but I sure loving these trucks and I love running this Toyota truck."
