IN HIS OWN WORDS:

"When you look at the field, every single driver on that board can win a race in the right situation. The competition is tougher because everyone gets more accustomed to the cars and tracks and the whole system, and it's great to be involved with it. It really is. It's great to be a part of that competition and create a situation where these drivers become household names, as they should."
