How is your relationship with new crew chief Scott Zipadelli? "I think it's there. On the race track, when you get into making pit calls, that might take a few more races. But, the equipment is there. Scott (Zipadelli) brought some of his knowledge from before, and the organizational skills which are what we lacked. I think we're going to hit the track and run really well and go from there. I look forward to really, really good things."

What do you think about Cup Series regulars running in the NNS? "I love it -- I love the competition. I love beating some of those guys, and love trying to keep up with some of them. At the end of the day, you can take a satisfactory day and look at who you beat and take some positives from that. It makes you feel good."
