What’s one memory you have from all of your years racing that really stands out to you?”

“Probably my best World of Outlaws moment was when we went to Attica, OH. I was in my own car and blew up in time trials, and then I had to run the Last Chance Showdown. I made the race, and then I got to fifth and they had to red flag it. I had a hole in my radiator, so we changed the radiator and I passed for the lead with two to go and I won the race. That, and winning the World of Outlaws Championship on the last lap at [The Dirt Track at] Charlotte in front of all of those people. Me and Josh [Richards] had to finish in front of each other, and he passed me and I passed him back, and then he passed me and I passed him back, and then he got away from me, and then on the last lap he blew his tire and I passed him coming off of one and two on the last lap.
