Do you enjoy road course racing?
"You know, I actually really enjoy road course racing. I don't have a ton of experience, but I enjoy the challenge and really take pride in finishing well. It's a unique challenge and I do as much as I can to prepare for the race; extra practice time, pace car rides before practice and I even spent some time earlier this year at Ron Fellows driving school in Spring Mountain, Nevada to fine tune some of my skills. My goal is a top-five finish and to compete for the win."
