Dad taught me everything I know. Unfortunately, he didn’t teach me everything he knows.
I’ve got a great team of engineers behind this race car. I’ve got a great bunch of mechanics that make it reliable. This car is developed to go out there and be better than the Reynard, and I feel that it is.
If we get in an accident that’s strong enough to break bones, it’s going to break bones. What makes me a little bit higher risk is that if I break my right ankle again, I’ve got a bunch of screws and plates in there, and that would not be good.
The only thing that’s changed is the competitiveness of the series. It’s only become harder to win in our series as the years have gone by. Competition breeds good things, and that’s what’s happened here.
Winning in my business is everything.
I tell all the rookies that come into our series and all the young drivers they can come ask me anything at any time, and we’ll give them the straight shoot.
I wouldn’t mind meeting Eddie Van Halen. That would be great. We need to invite him to a race.
