Do you feel like you have a target on your back as the series points leader? "Not really because everybody goes out here and they race their own race and just try to do the best they can. They can't worry about what we're doing. That's up to us to go out and do our thing, be consistent and not get in trouble and get it to the end of the race and hopefully get some wins along the way."
Does the experience from being the series' 2006 champion help you this year? "I think it helps that we've been there and we've done it and we understand it. It's a different year, it's different circumstances and we still have to go out and do it. That's the key, just doing it without making mistakes."

What are your plans for the upcoming off-weekends? "I'm going to relax. The last two months -- along with our nine, 10 races we've had and that one weekend off -- which I didn't take a weekend off. I went home and didn't rest up like I should have. I'm pretty worn down now and I'm going to go home and take it easy and recuperate and get ready for Martinsville in three weeks."
