He said, "I'm excited about next year. I think everything is going to be the same on my end -- it's looking that way. I have a good thing going; I hate that we're going to take a bunch of time off. I had that really good run and then we took that time off to New Jersey and it kind of felt hard to come back and get going again. This one is going to be a long time. I sure like riding these things and I wish we had more days in the offseason that we got to ride them on tracks that we race at. It's been an incredible year. Probably the first time all year, within the last week and a half, I said, 'Man, I'm tired.' I didn't really notice. I've been pretty focused and I trained really hard this year. I did quite a bit more than in years past and took everything up a notch. I'm looking forward to getting right back to it and seeing if I can do the same thing again. I took my training up one notch -- I know there's another notch there. We're going to try to do it just a little bit better."
