“Last year’s Nationwide Series race at Talladega was one of the most unique races I’ve ever been a part of. The gamut of emotions that I ran through was pretty insane. It went from thinking I wouldn’t be able to even compete, due to the carbon monoxide levels that I was showing following the Cup race, to winning my first race for Penske Racing. We were off to a great start to the season and I remember sitting in the infield care center thinking ‘Well, there goes the championship.’ I should still apologize to everyone in the care center that day because I was pretty upset. But everything worked out and we were able to go to Victory Lane. We took the point lead back that day and never looked back.”

“I love restrictor-plate races because they are very mentally challenging, you are constantly thinking ahead and trying to position yourself to be in the lead draft at the end of the race. They remind me of the 1.5-mile races in the IndyCar Series because many of them came down to making your move at the last possible minute. Our Alliance Truck Parts Dodge should be strong this weekend. Having the opportunity to race two weekends in a row allows me and the crew to get into a rhythm. We’re looking to have a big weekend, although, Talladega has always been a wildcard race and it always will be.”
