DP: If I said you're going cross-country and you've got three guys in the backseat, who's going with you?

TS: Well, I can promise you it wouldn't be three guys. I'd take three girls with me.

DP: That's fair. Who are the ladies?

TS: I would pick Halle Berry, Carmen Electra and probably Angelina Jolie.

DP: You're looked at as that blue-collar workingman's driver from the Midwest. But you switched from Chevy to Toyota. Any grief from the fans about going with a foreign car?

TS: Not so far. The thing that I like about Joe and J.D. [Gibbs] as car owners is that they are going to do whatever it takes for us to win championships. Obviously, they thought that this was the right direction for us. So I stand behind them on that.

DP: Aren't you proud? The interview's over and I didn't ask you how important it is for you to win the Daytona 500.

TS: That's why I actually like you.

THE FINE PRINT: Phil Mickelson took an 11 on the 14th at Pebble. So Peter Ueberroth, who was in the foursome, got to say "You're away, Phil" four times in a row.
