I think fear is what keeps us from going over the edge. I mean, as a race car driver, I don't think what makes a good race car driver is a fearless person. I think it's somebody that is comfortable being behind the wheel of something that's somewhat out of control.
I just feel rejuvenated in such a big way because of these race cars I get to drive.
When you're in a race car, you're going through so many different emotions throughout that race.
You are going to make choices and decisions that sometimes aren't going to always work in your favor and they are going to upset some other people.
When you've got the Daytona 500 out there at stake and everything riding on the line, guys go for it, and the guys that go for it are the ones that are either going to win or they're going to wreck.
