JOEY, WHAT'S THIS ROOKIE YEAR BEEN LIKE FOR YOU SO FAR?

I'm just ready to move on and go to White Mountain. I know we have a good car, and we just need to get it going again. If we could just get some luck.

We've just had awful luck all year -- and there's nothing you can do about luck. You can't make your own luck all the time. We put ourselves in good positions, and sometimes, it's just not our day.

YOU'VE KIND OF CHANGED YOUR OPINION OF WHITE MOUNTAIN MOTORSPORTS PARK.

I didn't really care for the track going in, but as the race went on there in May, it wasn't bad. I kind of like the place now.

It's not like Beech Ridge where you have to save your stuff the whole race. You can go a lot harder a lot sooner there.

HOW WILL THIS TIME AROUND BE DIFFERENT FOR YOU, OTHER THAN HAVING SOME EXPERIENCE ON THE TRACK?

We had a good run there earlier this year. I'm excited to go there with this new car. It's got a lot of power. The first time I went there, that was the problem -- we didn't have enough power.
