Do you feel pressure to win the Nationwide race at Texas to make it six wins in a row at the track? Just to be mentioned in the same sentence as guys like Sam Ard is a big deal. I always enjoy breaking records, I don't go after them but they just seem to fall in place for me. In the Nationwide race, going for six in a row, it's going to be awfully exciting. I can't think of a better place then Texas, with Eddie Gossage (president, Texas Motor Speedway) and all those guys out there that do such a great job with that facility. Of course, maybe we can get to where we should have been last year in the fall race and win the triple again. Felt like we had a really good car in the Cup race too so we had a shot there."

Do you enjoy racing at Texas? "I love Texas, it's one of my favorite race tracks. We've won a pole there and we've always run well there in the past. It's really just one of my favorite race tracks on the circuit. It's multi-groove so you can run on the top or on the bottom. I'm going to be in the Rexall Toyota Camry in the Nationwide Series with Braun Racing, and the Aaron's Dream Machine Toyota Camry in the Sprint Cup Series."
