Pre Race Interview:

1. We ran this track in the All-Star race, albeit the old package. How is your confidence level here?

2. Will we see multiple grooves?

3. With the top 4 looking solidly set in points, give your best guess for who will finish 5th in points?

1. Michigan has always been good to me, but my bad luck streak is still running strong. Something has to give.... right?!?!?!

2. I think bottom will be the way to go to be fast, but you will be able to defend a lane up said I that could create some good battles.

3. How the hell am I in this battle?

1. Not sure about the new package but Michigan is one of the tracks I'm more familiar with. Finished 4th I think in the invitational before the season started and I generally run pretty consistently here. If I can stay out of trouble I think I might be able to do something. Maybe not catch the top guys, but finally breaking into the top 10 is a possibility. 

2. Possibly. 

3. Definitely won't be me, that's for sure. Probably Colton.

1. I like the big tracks man and I'm 100 percent ready for this one, as long as we can actually get some racing in it'll be a blast.


2. Sure there are gonna be a few lines you could run but I'm anticipating there being one that stands out a bit from the others thats just a little bit better.


3. Not sure but its gonna be a close one.

1.  No confidence yet, I have to get some practice in.

2.  We tend to have guys trying multiple lines so I think we will see it here too.

3.  Colton tends to finish the season strong, but Mike Richter has been real competative lately, it's going to be a battle.

1 - Someone, Somewhere (IRacing) really needs to take a look at these Truck Set-ups....
I've not been happy with them all season, Cup has been 100% better Set-up wise.
"We" PRL needs to look at improving Drive-ability and come up with better set-ups and/or force everyone to use it unless it gets "better"
Confidence Level: 83.75% For a top 10

2 - 100%

3 - We at HKS are here to mix up the WB party, I agree with Rob Besaw and Colton is a target, I WANT a Top 5
Confidence Level: 100%

1. I enjoy Michigan. I never really liked the track until I drove it on iRacing. It's actually a lot of fun. In the trucks I am a little worried about how loose it gets in 3 and 4. I feel like I can get a solid 9th or 10th place out of it.

2. Early in a run I can see 2 lanes working in 1 and 2. Not so much in 3 and 4. If there are it'll be middle vs high (but not the Larson line aka the wall).

3. I'm going with Colton but Mitchell is a hell of a driver so far, so I could see it being close for that 5th spot.

Pre Race Interview:

1. We ran this track in the All-Star race, albeit the old package. How is your confidence level here?

I have no clue what the old package feels like since I’m new. So this is all I know. I qualified pole and dominated an official race yesterday, only to finish 4th due to late race pit stradegy so I feel good about it. I like being slippery.

2. Will we see multiple grooves?
Yes. Good drivers can make the bottom work early in a run. You’ll see me way up high, and most will probably run the middle.

3. With the top 4 looking solidly set in points, give your best guess for who will finish 5th in points?

I want to say me. Next two tracks should be top 5’s for me. Worried about ending the season on a road course I’ve never touched, but my road racing is improving. We should see a great battle between me, Colton, and mike to finish the season. Having a road course to end it gives a slight advantage to mike if you ask me.

Good win Dominic!

I'm happy with my finish. Started around 14th or 15th. Fell down to 20th. Ended up in 8th. I'm cool with that!
