"The Busch stuff is very much a positive. I think their program is getting better you know obviously with the performance they had Chicago, they are on the right track. We're working together and we are able to help each other and that in turn helps both of us and helps Casey a lot. I think a lot of the plans we put in place in May are really starting to pay off now. I think it has really helped Casey's confidence and helped him get up to speed a lot faster."
