- From the Drivers Seat: You have finished inside the top-20 in the first three races of the year. What does that mean for your team?

"Last weekend in Las Vegas was a wild day. We didn't start off on the right foot with a tough qualifying effort, but our Petty GMS team kept pushing throughout the weekend to grab another top-20 finish. We keep improving our finishing result from our qualifying position each race, which is a positive sign. To start the season with three top-20s is a solid start for a brand new team. We are growing and learning, but still have a lot to do to get better at mile and a half tracks. I'm excited for what is coming up on the schedule with short tracks and road courses, so I believe our team is capable of keeping this streak going. I'm very proud of our execution and making the most out of every race so far this season."

- From the Drivers Seat: Compared to the last car, how hard is the Next Gen to drive?

"It's just a lot different. When I look at the old car, everyone was obviously really comfortable with it and that car spent years in development. Essentially the chassis had been around since 2007, so there was a ton of development on that car and it was optimized to drive well and drive fast. Now, with the Next Gen, you have a brand new car that's not optimized and guys are having to learn how to drive them. I enjoy it. It's difficult. You are on the edge the entire time. You are on a fine line of making speed and making a choice of how hard you want to push it every corner of every lap. That is how racing is supposed to be."
