Earnhardt Jr. Budweiser Race Preview

Dale Jr. on Loudon:
"It seems like we don't have many finishes to show it (one top 10 for the team at Loudon in five starts) but we have always been able to run well here during the race. But, it's a track that is very difficult to pass on, so track position and avoiding late crashes is the keyâ^À¦ at least for us it is. They made some changes to the corners to try and make it a more competitive track, or at least make it two grooves wide, so we will see how much it helps."

"In the past, this is one of the tracks that I've not really looked forward to, but I can tell ya one thing, the folks up there like their Budweiser and always treat us real wellâ^À¦"

"A lot of the stuff with our team has been pretty public these last two weeksâ^À¦ but we're all working together to make sure our string of top-10 finishes will continue this weekend. We had such a great start of the season, and we're striving to get back to that string of consistent top-five and top-10 weekends."
