Do you look forward to racing at Atlanta? "I always look forward to racing at Atlanta. It's super fast and wide with multiple grooves that allows for a lot of side-by-side racing. You will have two and three-wide racing for most of the race, which makes it great for the fans. What I like the most about it is that you have your pick of lines to run, so if your car isn't handling well in one groove you can move around and find a line that better suits the way your car is driving. Atlanta Motor Speedway provides some of the best racing of the season and that has been proven over and over by the exciting finishes we have seen there over the years."

Do you think you can win at Atlanta this weekend? "We've proven that we can lead at this place. The last two times I've been here in the Nationwide car, we've led the most laps and still came up short. I don't know what it is, but this is a fun, fast track and it's a place where JGR (Joe Gibbs Racing) has been really good at, historically. If we go out there on Saturday and race the way we are capable of and have some things fall our way, I'm sure that we can contend for a win."
