How do you feel about returning to Kentucky Speedway, a place in which you had a lot of success at?
“I’m really excited about returning to Kentucky this weekend. Last week at Road America we struggled a little bit but I can’t think of a better place to rebound than a track that I’ve typically run pretty well at. Two seasons ago when I swept the Truck races here, it was a great accomplishment for myself. We have a full test day on Wednesday, so Matt Lucas and the guys will get our Toyota Care Camry dialed in. This weekend will also mean a lot to me as we’ll have Toyota Care as our primary sponsor this weekend. The Camry’s are made just down the road in Georgetown so I hope I bring a sense of pride to them.”
