Kurt Busch: "We have a ton of family members and friends in town this weekend," said Busch. "Of course the big plan was for us all to be here tonight and playing around by the lake tomorrow. Now they'll have to make a choice for tomorrow, I guess.

"As for the race, everyone was set up for racing at night," Busch added. "This will really have everyone scratching their heads, that's for sure. We were hoping to have an adjustable setup here tonight. Running here tomorrow will definitely put a bigger premium on the adjustability factor. I know everyone will be really loose at the start of the race because all the rubber got washed off the track. It'll get tighter as the race goes on and that's where the adjustability comes in. Pat (Tryson, crew chief), Dave Winston (team engineer) and I were talking about the situation about 30 minutes into the rain delay. We're hoping it might just work out in our favor. This is the car that ran so strong in the afternoon race at Atlanta. We're not that far off the setup that we started that race with.

"You just gotta feel for the fans, though," he continued. "I'm sure a lot of them were counting on tomorrow for a travel day. The weather has put a kink in a lot of plans, but we shouldn't forget what this holiday is really all about. It's Memorial Day and it's those brave men and women we need to keep in mind. When you think about the big picture, we all have it pretty good, don't we?"
