You’ve raced at Kansas Speedway a couple of times now. What makes that track different than the other 1.5-mile tracks we visit?

“Kansas Speedway is special to me since it’s where I made my first 1.5-mile start in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series a couple of years ago. It’s unique as far as intermediate tracks go because it makes the aerodynamics of the car come into play a lot. You’ll be out there and think your car is going to hold the corner fine with the throttle you’re putting into it, but then it will change and either snap loose or tighten up extremely quickly. It can be a challenge. The track seems to amplify how your car is handling and you just have to try to find enough time to react to it. We had a nice run there last season when I finished eighth in the XFINITY Series race. I’m confident we can take our top-15 momentum from Charlotte and turn it into a top-10 finish with our No. 33 American Ethanol Chevrolet this weekend.”
