"Atlanta hasn't been my best track, that's for sure. But, I am going there with the attitude that the Stacker 2 team is going to turn that around. We are going there and hoping it doesn't rain and we can have a good run and a good finish."

WALLACE ON ATLANTA--

"This has definitely been a track that I haven't had success at. I have struggled here throughout my career, but I am hoping to get things moving in the right direction and getting on the right track for better finishes. For whatever reason, it just hasn't been my track. Even when it was configured the old way, I couldn't get around it and I am still trying to figure that out. But, Ward (Burton) has run well here and I hope he can help me and our team run better.

"This team has an incredible desire to win races and so do I. We are going to get the Stacker 2 team back to the front and put the numbers on the board. That is our goal. We're hoping that weather doesn't play a part in this weekend's qualifying, practice or race. The last three weeks the rain has affected some part of our racing. We need to get on the track Friday and have some time to work on our qualifying setup and get a good starting spot. Then we can go to work on Saturday and get the race setup underneath us. We want to come out of Atlanta with a good starting spot and a better finishing spot."

LOPEZ ON ATLANTA--

"I'm looking ahead to Atlanta with some optimism. We struggled last week at the beginning of the race, but we worked at getting the car to drive better for Kenny and I think we should have a better grip on things this week. We are taking our Rockingham car that we ran last fall with it. It was a pretty racy car and should be able to get the job done. Now it's up to our team to get the car better for Kenny and have good pit stops on Sunday. Hopefully we can have a better week this week."
