Dennis Setzer on the Kansas Speedway:

ON KANSAS SPEEDWAY: "Kansas Speedway is a great track. it is very smooth and wide with room to race and pass. The weather shouldn't be too bad there; I think they are predicting 90 degrees. As hot as that sounds, it is much better than 110 degree heat we have raced in at previous events. We are taking a truck that is a past winner to Kansas. This truck has really brought us good luck in the past. As for Morgan Dollar Motorsports and myself, Kansas Speedway has been great to both of us. We have always qualified well there and finished inside the top-three. "

ON 2004 SEASON SO FAR: "This has been an incredible season so far for this Silverado team. Danny (Gill, crew chief) and the crew have put awesome trucks under me each week. We have had great race strategy, good pit stops and the results have been there for us. It is a total team effort for us; everyone knows their job and does it perfectly. We work together as a unit. Plus, we have the benefit of the great support from Chevrolet giving us their support from every technical aspect. We are going to keep racing each race as we have and let the points take care of themselves."
