What does it mean to race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway?

“Being in the Brickyard 400 will definitely be a dream come true. It’s such a cool place, so historic on the open-wheel side and has become one of the most prestigious races in stock cars, as well.”

Talk about the results that you’ve had in the No. 33 car.

“The guys that work on the car week-in and week-out have done a great job adapting to different drivers and different circumstances. It’s been fun. We’ve been able to have strong runs and have finishes capable of the top 10; with our best finish of 13th at Las Vegas. It’s been a good situation and it’s been a tremendous asset for me to be able to get in there and drive that car and have some fun with it.”
