Terry Cook at Kansas Speedway:

Kansas Speedway: "I'm ready to be back behind the wheel of a truck I know that. It seems like forever since the Camping World Truck Series has raced. I've been keeping busy by doing Nationwide races for Phil Parsons so I've at least been at the track. But racing trucks is what I love to do, so I'm ready to get back to the track and race. Winning in Kansas really helps give you momentum going back to the track especially after a long break like this. It's good for the team and for me to know that our speedway program has been so strong since the end of last year. I'm always anxious to race with HT Motorsports and so proud of what all we have accomplished together. I know if we can get a sponsor we can continue to do many great things this year."

April is Autism Awareness Month: "I am encouraging everyone who has a child or knows someone with a child to take a few minutes in the month of April to learn more about Autism. This is something that hit close to home with Amy and me when our son Cody was diagnosed at 18 months of age. We learned that 1 out of 150 kids are diagnosed every day with this and early intervention is the key to helping your child or someone you know get the help they need. It is not your typical movie like "Rain Man" all the time. We know a lot of people in the racing industry who are affected, either with their own child or a family member, by Autism. So all of us are encouraging everyone to log on to www.autismspeaks.org right now to learn more. You will be glad you did."
