PATRICK CARPENTIER QUOTES:

"Driving the Busch race at Homestead is a great opportunity for me to get some more experience behind the wheel of these cars on an oval. I am really thankful that Stanley Tools has come on board and allowed me the chance to drive another Busch race before the off season. Hopefully there is a lot of information that can transition over between the Cup and Busch Chargers. I have a lot of support over here at Gillett Evernham Motorsports to help me make this transition to NASCAR fulltime in 2008. It is really a dream come true."
