You’re coming off your first short-track win and to the biggest track on the schedule where you haven’t had the best results. What do you need to do at Talladega to have a chance to win?

“I’ve never been the best superspeedway racer, but it’s something I have been trying to get better at. I think the biggest thing is you’re going to have to be aggressive and be comfortable with making the big moves to stay up front. You have to avoid the Big One that tends to happen here, but if we can be aggressive and make the moves I think we can make, we will be right there at the end.”
