On being asked what Tony is feeling and why his relationships don’t last long he said that some last for two hours and some for two months. Although he broke up with Jessica he will still see her around the tracks driving for him. He also said, “We got rid of some dead weight earlier this week, so it made it a lot easier. It’s been a big weight lifted off our shoulders,” he added, “just sometimes you have to make adjustments in your life, and we did that and it has definitely helped.”
