I got a Supercross win at Daytona. Crazy. Crazy.

INTERVIEWER: We're wishing we had a camera videotaping the family right now. We know how happy they all are for you. You have had three second place finishes in your past. What was different tonight in terms of putting it all together?

I'm not an outdoor guy. This is like an outdoor track. So, I'll take it. Man, I sprinted the first few laps. And my lungs were so closed off today. I kept saying that after every-- after the heat, and after practice, I was like, man, my lungs are just so closed off. But, I knew if I could put in some laps at the beginning, I was fast enough to get away and get a cushion. And it worked. This is awesome. This is awesome.
