There are also a lot of good drivers out there, Chuck Worsham guys that I came up from the bottom with that are still out here.

Q. Would you say that you have made any mistakes in your career?

A. To many to list, but I take each mistake and turn it into a learning lesson for me. I take nothing negative in life, even if it is bad. I just try and figure out how to go on from there.
