Dale Jr. Quotes for Loudon

"We were much better at Loudon last year, but they've resurfaced the turns, so we'll see how we respond to the changes. I think we're a team that is equipped to take advantage of changes: we're smarter with our set-ups, so we should be competitive and able to adapt to whatever the track throws us. I thought we had a real shot to win this race last season, so that makes me more eager to see how we're gonna do when they throw the flag on Sunday."

"We're not dwelling on what happened (a crash late in Sunday's race at Chicagoland Speedway). We're looking forward. We're still having a career-best year for this team, and Matt (Kenseth, point leader) is having some kind of an all-time-best-ever season. We're going to keep doing what we have been doing."

Your opponent, in the end, is never really the player on the other side of the net, or the swimmer in the next lane, or the team on the other side of the field, or even the bar you must high-jump. Your opponent is yourself, your negative internal voices, your level of determination.
