What did it feel like to win the inaugural Truck race at Iowa Speedway? "Winning last year at Iowa was fantastic. It helped us build momentum as a team and finish the 2009 season out on a strong note. We've had some great Toyota Tundras so far this season, and I expect nothing less out of the PC Miler Navigator Toyota Tundra this weekend. Iowa is such a fun track for us. They did a great job building a fantastic facility where it is fun to race and the Midwest fans are always excited to welcome the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series -- it should be a great weekend."

Are you ready to get back to racing after a month long break? "I'm ready. I'm really ready. We went and tested last week at a short track in Georgia and had a great test there. It's fun to go test because you get to learn stuff, but it's so much more fun to race and be competitive. The competitor inside you wants to race. So I'm looking forward to going to Iowa and getting back in the truck and going racing."
