We used to run a lot of them back home when I first started, ... I can run terrible on them or I can run good on them.

I think it beats them all. This is the best feeling a father can have.

I just got so slow in Turns 1 and 2 and that's where he beat me. In Turns 3 and 4 we were both getting around the top pretty well. It was sort of my fault. I was running the top of this thing all weekend and sat there and second-guessed myself and knew I should have gone back up but I didn't do it and got out run.

I was just trying to save tires and run so easy, ... I didn't want to get to lapped cars because I didn't know what I'd do with them.

I came here to learn and not to change the world.

I definitely have to work on a few things -- my restarts, going through the gears and coming in and out of pit road. We now have 200 miles under our belt that we never had before. It was a good start and I am ready to do it again.

I caught the bottom there in Turns 1 and 2 and was running pretty good when everybody was slinging that stuff off of the bottom.

Not bad for a 20-year-old.

I was glad to see Kraig win the Nationals the other night, ... I probably would have given him a pretty good race if I wouldn't have crashed (in a preliminary race).
