What are your thoughts as we head to the first road course on the XFINITY Series schedule?

"Watkins Glen has been a challenge for me in the past. I've gotten good finishes, but it's not the most comfortable road course for me. It's certainly unique to all of the others that we go to, and, now that it's been repaved, it's even more important to have a fast race car when you unload. Luckily, with the MENCS race at Sonoma already under my belt, I've already knocked the road-course racing dust off a bit this season. Hopefully that gives me a mentality advantage over the NXS regulars that will be turning their first laps on a road-course all year."
