On racing at the Deadwood Shootout:
“Deadwood has always been a crazy race for me. I’ve had a lot of success and exciting race wins there. It’s a small track and usually I’m not a big fan of that but for some reason, the rodeo grounds at Deadwood is a special place for me. I think the small track combined with the atmosphere of the race creates an intense racing environment that really gets the fans fired-up. I think the excitement of the fans and support I feel from Team 68 fans is what drives my success at this track.”
On racing for his 125th win:
“It would be awesome to get my 125th win at Deadwood since I got my 100th win there a couple years back. Honestly, I don’t worry too much about race wins, records and these benchmarks. For me and my team, it’s all about taking it race-by-race and making sure we’re 100% every time we pull-up to the start line.”
