"The flatness of Loudon is what makes it so tough, being only a mile and tight corners. It's really heavy braking. It's like a really big Martinsville. You actually still have some pretty decent corner speed, you just have a feeling of being up out of the track. A lot of these late-model guys are really good at it, because that's what they grew up racing, and I never did that. So, it's a little different for me. Last year, I was actually pleased with how my race went, so we'll look to get even better this time."
