I`m only driving my car 85, 90 percent out there -- not even pushing it the final 100 percent because I`m scared to death seeing all the other people with problems out there. It`s just terrible circumstances to race in.

That young man has been impressive!
All in all, it`s just a great experience to be out here and run with the best of them. We need to build a championship team for next year.
