News & Notes

This week's truck:

"This is the same truck we ran here last fall. It is a really good truck, fast and consistent. We tested it at Atlanta last fall and it was very fast."

Last Race for this Truck:
10/5/01, Texas Motor Speedway, Silverado 350, Started 23rd, Finished 15th

"It was definitely a long night. We started near the back and just methodically worked our way toward the front. We made up 15 positions, and at a track like Texas where speeds are so high and it can be difficult to pass, each one of those positions is a lot of work."

Recapping last race:
Started 23rd/Finished 14th, 196 of 200 laps, running, $13,265

"We had a strong truck, a truck that was capable to running and finishing in the top-10. Unfortunately, we had a couple of sets of tires that really disagreed with the setup on the truck and we lost a lot of time on the track. When we had the two good sets on, we were running times faster than guys up in the top-10. The good thing is today we gained two spots in the points to 14th."

Previewing the O'Reilly Auto Parts 400:

"We are really excited about going back to Texas. Albertson's is with us this weekend, and they have a bunch of people coming in to watch us put on a good show. We tested this truck at Atlanta last fall and it was really fast. It hasn't been run since. It was very fast down there and we look to have a good run for all the Albertson's people in Texas."
