DODGE NATIONWIDE DRIVERS

"Watkins Glen is a track that I've really enjoyed since the first time I laid eyes on it. It's a very cool track with a lot of history behind it. It's one of the tracks that the oval drivers seem to run well at, as opposed to some of the other more technical road courses. It certainly has its technical spots, but it's more high speed and I think that suits the oval guys a little better. We struggled in this race last year, but it was my first road race in a Nationwide car, so I didn't really know what to expect. Heading into this race, I feel like I've got a much better understanding of road racing, and how to run with the best of them."

"Watkins Glen is a track that I picked up on fairly quickly from the first time I raced there. It's a 'speedway-type' road course and that fits my driving style well. The Nationwide cars are a blast to drive at the Glen because they go through the corners so much faster than the Cup cars. You have to back up your braking points in the Cup car, but you can really race hard into the corners in the Nationwide car. I've been close to winning a road course race a couple of times in my career and I'm confident that we will have a shot at it this weekend."
