"Since we've figured out some things on our speedway package, I
should have a better car when we return to New Hampshire. We found some
things when we tested and raced at Indy and I think they have helped us
then. Our performance has improved a lot on the speedways, we just
had any luck."
- Ward Burton, driver of the Caterpillar Racing Dodge
BURTON ON RICHMOND
"We were running for a million dollars and we really wanted to take that bonus and the trophy home. But, we got caught short pitting because of fuel mileage and it got us behind. We were fortunate enough to get back on the lead lap right off and try and get back through some of the traffic. We just couldn't seem to make up any ground on that last run.
"The guys have worked real hard on the No. 22. We broke a motor during happy hour and they got it changed real fast, hoping to get back out for the rest of the practice. But, we just missed getting some more laps on the track before it ended. For not having any practice, they put a good set-up under me for the start of the race. Tommy kept working on the CAT car to get it better, but it just seemed to keep getting tighter on the longer runs."
BALDWIN ON NEW HAMPSHIRE
"I always look forward to getting back to New Hampshire. We turned the car around that we ran last week and it's also the same car that we ran at New Hampshire in July. We were running decent until Kevin Harvick spun us. Hopefully, we can get the race set-up to Ward's liking and have a good run. If we get the car right, Ward will do the rest."
BALDWIN AND CHRISTIANSEN RETURN TO FAMILIAR TRACK
Tommy Baldwin, crew chief, and Tracey Christiansen, tire specialist, have both seen victory lane at New Hampshire International Speedway. Together, Baldwin and Christiansen have scored five victories in the NASCAR Featherlite Modified Series at NHIS. They led NASCAR Winston Cup driver Steve Park to three victories and Jeff Fuller to two. Both return to NHIS in hopes of recapturing that winning style.
