How much momentum did the top-five finish at Darlington give your race team? "This season has been bumpier than I had expected, but after a strong run last weekend at Darlington I can feel things turning around. This is such a great group of hard-working guys and it has been tough on us all. Change is never easy but sometimes it is necessary to get things turned in a more positive direction. Everyone within the Braun Racing organization has really stepped in to help this team get back on track and I think we proved something last weekend with a top-five finish."

Are you looking forward to racing at Dover after your win there in the Truck Series last year? "Dover is definitely my favorite track. The win last year in the Camping World Truck Series was a huge confidence booster for me and reaffirmed everything that I had done the past three years to get to where I was. It was a big win for the whole team and for everyone at Albertson's. I have never been to the track in a Nationwide Series car, but hopefully some of the characteristics will transfer from the truck to the car. I'm excited to go back to Dover and hopefully we can have a repeat result."
