How do you think the addition of restrictor plates will affect the racing at Indianapolis Motor Speedway this year?
“I think it will have a positive effect on the racing seen this season. The restrictor plates will bunch us all back up and make passing more frequent. In the past, the cars always seem to spread out so much that it was extremely difficult to pass anyone and put on a good show for the fans. This year, we will be bunched up, drafting a little bit and able to move around a little more easily. It should be an exciting race. I actually tested this package earlier this season. There were only three of us out there, but we were in a draft pretty much the entire time. That will only increase in intensity with a whole field out there running so close together. It’s a track that still requires help to pass someone, but with other cars out there it shouldn’t be too hard to get a run and make some moves.”
