A lot of guys love the whole atmosphere of Iowa Speedway. Does the track being designed by a driver appeal to you?
“Yeah, Iowa is always fun. It’s great to go into the Midwest and see all the Midwest fans. They have a history of always having great attendance at the race track. Anytime you go to a race track that has a big fan base and you have people excited about the race and it being a stand-alone Nationwide race, that gets us pumped up. It’s a fun race track that you can race. There are at least two grooves and you can run side-by-side. Fast cars can work their way to the front and normally you have less Cup drivers there, so it’s an opportunity for a Nationwide guy to pull off a win and kind of spring board or jump start their season.
Does this track compare to anything else on the circuit? 
“It’s kind of Richmond-esque. Everybody will say that, but they will say it with an asterisk because it’s like Richmond, but it’s not like Richmond. It’s shaped like Richmond, it drives kind of like Richmond, but the track is a lot wider. It has more grip, it has a lot bigger exits and the crucial thing about Richmond is tire management. You don’t have that as much at Iowa. It’s like Richmond, but it’s not.”
