Labonte Comments on Racing at The Prelude To The Dream:
"This is always a cool event. It started off as something fun, but now it might as well pay points towards the Cup championship. So many of the guys come here and it's really, really competitive. It's just so much about pride, well, that and trying not to have Tony whip us all night (smiling). But, it's all for a great cause and everyone has fun.
"It's really fun to come out here with the guys you compete with every weekend and do something different like this. I am going to be able to drive my own car too, so that makes it more fun for me and my guys. Team Cincinnati Children's Hospital has a great line-up and I feel like we have a great shot at the first-place donation."
