YOU HAD A HOLESHOT IN YOUR HEAT RACE LAST WEEK IN DAYTONA. ANOTHER PIECE OF THE PUZZLE THAT YOU AND TONY (BERLUTI) HAVE BEEN WORKING ON:  “Yeah, another piece of the puzzle that we’ve been working on all year. I was pretty pumped on the holeshot because we worked on it at RC’s track all week. My Heat Race went pretty good. I finished fifth but I think that my ride was better than a fifth-place finish. I rode pretty well.”

YOU RACE RESULTS THE LAST TWO WEEKS HAVEN’T REFLECTED HOW AGGRESSIVE AND WELL YOU HAVE BEEN RIDING:  “I don’t think they have. I feel that I’ve been riding really well and have been making some aggressive passes. In the Main Event (at Daytona last weekend), it took me a couple of laps to get into a rhythm and then I settled into a good pace.”

MORE TESTING UP AT RICKY’S (CARMICHAEL) COMPOUND THIS WEEK. WHAT’S THE FOCUS DURING THE RIDING? “Finding more speed. I’ve got the race starts figured out somewhat. Now, it’s just speed.”

WHERE SPECIFICALLY ARE YOU LOOKING FOR SPEED? “Ricky’s mom (Jeannie Carmichael) has been working on sections. We’ve been focusing on corner speed and jumps. It’s a combination of things.”

TALK ABOUT WORKING WITH JEANNIE CARMICHAEL: “She’s really good. I think that I’m going to stay another week and work with her.”
