  • “I’m going to run in the Indy 500, not this year but next year for Mclaren, and really excited about that. It’s been a dream of mine to run that event.”
  • The differences between NASCAR, Formula 1 and IndyCar
  • Which styles of races are the most taxing and how he prepares leading up to a race
  • “Putting myself in uncomfortable situations ultimately makes me get better, but I also get a lot of enjoyment out of succeeding and figuring out, and ultimately winning a race.”
  • Following the Sacramento Kings’ success from afar
  • Why Days of Thunder is his favorite racing movie
