July 09, 2014, Eric Johnson, Special for, NASCAR.com
Q: Who would play you in a movie?
A: I guess I would say Adam Sandler would play me in a movie. I think we kind of look alike. I think we have the same personality and we like to have fun, do things our own way, kinda crazy sometimes, say things that are on our mind that isn't necessarily in the script. So I'll go with Adam Sandler.
Q: Favorite bands or musicians?
A: I love listening to Linkin Park and The Killers. Journey is always fun. Katy Perry is fun. Metallica, Nirvana, Guns and Roses, Godsmack, Black Eyed Peas, Akon. I've got 3 Doors Down, Van Halen, Tom Petty and a bunch of different stuff that I always enjoy listening to.
Q: Favorite TV shows?
A: Favorite TV shows would be "Breaking Bad," "The Walking Dead," "The Following," "American Horror Story" and "Last Man Standing."
Q: Favorite websites?
A: Websites I check would be NASCAR.com, Speed51.com, RacingWest.com, Jayski.com, ESPN.com, Yahoo.com and that's about it.
Q: Favorite foods?
A: On the West Coast, it would be In-N-Out Burger. Wienerschnitzel is also good. Mac and cheese is good, but I also eat anything Samantha makes. Samantha's a great cook.
Q: Favorite drinks?
A: Jalapeno margarita and Monster Energy.
Q: Favorite place on Earth?
A: Cabo. I enjoy going there

A: Ice cream.
Q: Favorite athletes?
A: Peyton Manning. I think he's super good at what he does. Evan Longoria, the baseball player for the Tampa Bay Rays. I don't know, I'm a fan of all athletes really. I think a lot of them have great attributes and do good things on and off the field. I believe it's fun to watch other athletes participate whether it's racing or not racing.
Q: What sports do you enjoy watching and following?
A: Of the non-motorsports I like football, basketball and golf. Motorsports I like to watch are super late model racing, off-road racing and GRC.
Q: Something you always say?
A: "You're an idiot!"
Q: Sports you would never do?
A: I think sports I would never do are skateboarding stuff, snowboarding, half-pipe, just because it's -- I don't know -- I don't seem to have very good balance or coordination with my legs and feet. Seems awkward sometimes when I try to do those things.
Q: Would you go big-wave surfing?
A: I'd like to work my way up to big-wave surfing. I surfed a little bit long board and did O.K. But as far as really trying to figure out how to surf, again that leg coordination thing comes in and I don't know if I could do that.
Q: Would you do a back flip into a foam pit on a motocross bike?
A: I would try that. I think that would be fun. I think Travis Pastrana could help me out with that one.
Q: Would you stay up all night square dancing?
A: I'm not so sure that I could stay up all night square dancing, no, but I have stayed up all night with Samantha dancing at night clubs, having some fun during Super Bowl weekend.
