Are you points racing at this point of the season or are you racing for wins? "We go out to win, that's what we come for. When you get in a situation when you don't have a truck that's going to win, then you have to points race. Then you have to do the best you can staying out of trouble to get the most positions you can, and not make mistakes. That's what we have to do the rest of the year."

How much do you enjoy racing at Las Vegas? "The track is a lot of fun to race on. It's really fast, has a lot of grip and it is pretty rough making you able to pass. You can move around too and run the top or the middle. Some people run the bottom, but it just depends on how you are handling. The track allowed us to put on a great race last year. We got a top-10 result and I'm optimistic that we can beat that this year. I'm looking forward to going back there with some of the notes from last season to apply to the Graceway Pharmaceuticals Tundra. We're really looking for wins."
