| Other Interesting Team Information|
|The announcer at Winner Speedway nicknamed me the Wild Child. That was after I had to tear off my front wing and restart in the back. I raced my way back to second. Then I backed up my name one night after I came from the back to second and was working on first when I bounced off the wall coming out of turn four. I restarted in the back with a spare tire and six laps to go and ended up winning the race. At first I wasn't sure I wanted that nickname, but now I've come to love it!|
