Bobby Labonte:

"The Easter break is always refreshing because the start of the season is pretty hectic. You have the biggest race of the season followed by, what turned out to be, a long west coast trip because of the rain we had in Fontana. So it's nice to relax and spend a lot of time with family. It's really important to the guys too. They need to take every opportunity to keep themselves fresh because this is a long season."

"I'm excited to get to Martinsville this weekend because I've liked that place since the first time I got on the track. That's just the way some racetracks are. It's not one thing about them that you can really put your finger on. You just have a good feel for them right out of the box. One of the real highlights of my career would have to be winning a race in all three series at Martinsville. That has to rank right up there with my championship and my Brickyard trophy."

"I like the fact that we go to Bristol and Martinsville back-to-back. Short track racing takes a little different mindset. You know it's going to be rough. You know that there is a chance you are going to get involved in something you had nothing to do with. So to be able to zone in on that for, really, three weeks is great. It's the same for crew chiefs too. I know Jeff (Meendering) has some stuff in the back of his mind that he might have picked up last weekend at Bristol that can help us."
