Quote: “Eldora is awesome. I love the atmosphere, they really do a great job of packing the stands every race. When the track gets slicked down during the race I think that really levels the playing field between the dirt guys and the asphalt guys. It’s a crazy race, but it’s all about just being around at the end. You just need to find your line and make it work for you.”

Quote:“Eldora is a lot of fun and I think everyone goes out there and has a good time while still trying to be competitive. My motto last year for this race was ‘just send it’ and it worked out pretty well for me. I’m going to stick with that mind set for the most part. We still have to be a little conservative where we can because we’re in the hunt for the regular season championship with only two races left before playoffs start. But overall, I think we’ll just go out there and have fun and try to get another win.”
