BEN, YOU OBVIOUSLY LOOK FORWARD TO ANY TRIP TO WHITE MOUNTAIN.

I can't wait to get to White Mountain. I love White Mountain. It's a great place. It's a Friday night deal, and hopefully a lot of people come up from (NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway) to check it out.

I love that place. It's one of the race tracks you can actually race on, and I've had a lot of success there.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE TRACK THAT YOU'VE TAKEN TO OVER THE YEARS?

A place like Beech Ridge is all finesse. You've got ot be really easy on the throttle -- but at White Mountain, you don't have to worry about the race track. You go and drive the car, basically. That's probably why I get myself in so much trouble at Beech Ridge. I try to take too much -- but up there, you 've got a little bit of banking to hold you.

Ever since I showed up there, I love the place. It's probably all in my head, but whatever works.

DO YOU HOLD ANY HOPE OF ADDING A FIFTH PASS NORTH CHAMPIONSHIP TO YOUR RESUME THIS WEEKEND?

(Johnny Clark) basically wrapped it up. But a championship isn't won on one race and it isn't lost on one race. It's what you do all year long. I feel he's had the better car all year long.

We chased him, chased him, chased him -- and we kept it close as long as we could. It was fun, and we'll go to White Mountain and we'll try to go out and win it.
