Favorite NASCAR driver? “Martin Truex Jr.; Beyond his talent behind the wheel of a racecar, I have always admired his positive attitude both on and off the racetrack. Whether he is winning for the Denver based Furniture Row Racing team, or fallen prey to mechanical issues, he always delivers a positive interview and outlook on the situation.”
Favorite racecar you have driven? “Getting back into the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series has reminded me how fun that series and speed of racing is. There is nothing that compares to racing in the draft at 190 MPH!”
What do you see as your competitive advantage as a driver? “My racing work ethic, as well as my knowledge of how a racecar reacts to chassis changes as I have worked on my own racecars throughout my whole career. Also, the opportunities to work with so many well-known crew chiefs, and learning all their diverse approaches to setting up, as well as making changes to the racecar on race day.“
Favorite race track? “After racing Texas Motor speedway this past season, and after being fastest in overall practice, qualifying 4th in the first round of qualifying and racing inside the top 5 for a big portion of the race, I would have to say Texas is one of my new favorite race tracks!”
