What gives you that confidence when you go into a track where so little is in your control?
You have to have confidence. You can't go in there being negative or dreading going into a superspeedway. You have to look at it as a points day. How to gain maximum points the entire time. Also, the opportunity to win is there. You always have the chance to win those speedway races. - Austin Dillon
