What are your feelings heading into next weekend? 
“I feel good. The one difference is that I showed up for a big race weekend — the biggest of the year for stock cars — with a new team, but I have a lot of familiar faces. One in particular of course being Tony Eury Jr. He’s what’s making me feel really, really comfortable about the whole program and being competitive. I’ve liked him since the first time I met him. It’s good to have him back. I think we’ll be alright. The car felt pretty good in the draft (yesterday in practice).”  
How do you feel in the car?
“I haven’t made very many laps, but I was super comfortable in the car right off the bat. I have my old seat and I have all of my old stuff, so it’s nice to fit right in. And having Tony Eury Jr. has helped a ton. I don’t always know who to talk to, but I can go to him. He knows who to talk to from there, so it makes it pretty straight forward for me. When we started off we were not super-fast and we are continually getting better and we are going to continue to do that as the week goes on and we can work on things.”
