Justin Lofton will lineup first in Friday's WinStar World Casino and Resort 400
Q&A with brother of NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Kasey Kahne RELATED: Subscribe to NASCAR Illustrated Hometown: "Enumclaw, Washington, is a great place to live. You are so close to the mountains and the ocean, it makes for lots of very fun activities such as fishing, great seafood, skiing, sledding. It's just a small town at the edge of the foothills. It was really nice to grow up in a small city with not much crime and no gangs." Being a sprint car crew chief: "It's an awesome job. There are lots of things to do and think about. It's a wild life out here, but the feeling I get when we win makes it all worth it. It's very hard to have a good race car every night because all the tracks are different, but that is the challenge and it's what makes it so exciting. One minute I feel happy and proud and the next minute I am depressed and mad. Just lots of emotions in this sport -- good and bad." Life on the road: "It's good when you are racing good, and it's bad when you're not. It's always hard to be away from my wife and my family. But it's part of the job. I love this job and my family understands it." Getting married: "It was the best thing that happened to me. My wife, Michelle, is the greatest person in the world and makes me a better person every day. Can't believe she chose me. Now she is pregnant with our first child, a girl. We can't wait until she is born. We are so excited and can't wait to be great parents." Favorite midnight snack: "I hate eating late at night but if I had to choose, I would say peanuts or beef jerky helps me drive late at night." Favorite app: " 'Race Monitor.' It's how we see our lap times and who finished where in our races." Music that moves me: "I like alternative, rock and some hip-hop. I don't like much country. It just makes me tired and doesn't get me excited. I like music that gets me going in the morning and all day." Favorite websites: "Mostly racing sites and ESPN. I love most sports and like to see what is going on in the sports world . My favorite sports are racing, football, fishing and basketball -- in that order." Travel: "I really like going on vacations with my wife, family and friends. I like to go to the mountains and go skiing, snowmobiling and sledding. I also like warm weather and the beach, hanging by the pool and fishing." Habit I'd like to kick: "I chew my fingernails all the time. It's worse when I'm nervous but it's all the time." Biggest influence in my life: "My parents for many reasons, but most of all how they raised us right and made us into great people. They always tried to do family things like vacations, or races, or even just dinner at home. We always ate dinner together. I can only hope Michelle and I raise our kids as well as our parents raised us." SUBSCRIBE NOW!
