What’s fun for you besides racing?
I like anything adventurous, as long as I’m outside doing something new, whether it’s biking, shooting, riding motorcycles, I love it. That’s the type of person I am. I just want to be busy doing something.
What’s the top item on your bucket list?
I’ve been looking on Instagram at all the ski resorts getting pounded with snow out in Colorado, so getting out to Colorado during the offseason and going snowboarding.
What’s your go-to on movie nights?
I’m really not a fan of movies, so I just go to whatever my girlfriend drags me to. That makes her happy and I can go and do whatever I want. The last one I watched was… (turns to Front Row Motorsports’ Shari Spiewak) what’s the one with Amy Schumer? Trainwreck.
What’s one item that’s always in your grocery bag?
Chicken or beer.
What’s your most memorable fan interaction?
There are some fans that make some really cool things to give to you to sign. Every year in Dover, there’s a lady who knits crosses and gives them to all the drivers. So she knits like 100 of them and any driver she sees during the weekend, she gives them one. That’s really cool.
