STERLING MARLIN QUOTES:

Comments on racing at Texas...
"I guess the track has lost a little grip, which will probably make for a better race. When they first repaved Atlanta it was terrible, it was a one-groove track and now it's a three-groove track. Texas probably has two grooves to it now so it should be a lot better."

Would you like to see Texas get a second date next year?
"Yeah, if it paid the same good money."

Comments on the war... "I'm really proud of all our guys and gals over there and we're keeping them all in our thoughts and prayers."

LEE McCALL QUOTES:

Comments on racing at Texas...
"From what I hear the track has lost grip. We should be able to run side by side. It's had a year to sit so hopefully we'll have some good side by side racing."

Comments on the war...
"Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone over there that are representing our country. Hopefully we can get this over with soon and get everybody back home safe."
