Well, right now I'm really excited. I can't really talk for the past because I didn't have a whole lot of control over a lot of the things that happened in the past. But right now what we're doing, we just got off of an extremely wonderful PR advance last week in L.A., and Dollar General is just really excited about some of the things that we're doing off track for them. On track for them, they see us getting in the game. They see all the things that we're doing and what we're going to look like at Kansas. Nobody else has seen it yet, and it's just very rewarding.
So to have been able to have impressed them enough to be able to double the amount of races we did last year in a secure manner, that's very encouraging. We see the growth of the program. We've seen in-house how it's blossomed, how it's just really opened up and started to develop into the capabilities of a full-time race team. We're selling every day, and we've got wonderful feedback. Every day to get fan mail or whatever it is, just that encouragement, keeps me going. And to know that Dollar General is behind us 110 percent, we know we're doing the right things and we've just got to continue to improve.
And speaking of growth there that you mentioned, the Indy 500 entry list went out Monday, and very noticeably there's a second car entered for Sarah Fisher Racing. Is there anything at this point that you can tell us about that?
Well, there were some things brewing, but for us we don't ever want to put anything on track that isn't capable of doing as well as the primary car. I've been in team B situations, and frankly, it stinks. So I would never want to expect a teammate of mine here at my race team to have to go through that. So we're kind of approaching a cutoff deadline here as far as those things go. We're past the full month of May program, but maybe a second week program. It's just all open for different opportunities, but it certainly has to be the right one.
And final question for us today, last year at the Indianapolis Zoo you got the chance to give an elephant a bath. Is that the strangest thing connected to your racing career that you've had the opportunity to do, or has there been anything stranger than that?
Oh, man, no, that was fun. I actually rode the elephant back to his little facility there. That was pretty scary because they're big animals. I don't know, that was pretty much top of my list. I have several pictures of that.
Thanks, Sarah, for joining us today. We appreciate that, and we're looking forward to seeing you at Kansas and at Indy.
