Driver quote:

"Kentucky is a great track and I'm looking forward to racing here this weekend. Last year, we had a pretty good race - I think it was one of the better oval races of my career. It's going to be good to back on a mile and a half. I don't want to say that they're easier, but for me, they feel more comfortable. I think we're going to have a pretty good car, so I'm looking forward to a good result at the Kentucky Speedway."
