TODD BODINE, No. 30 Lumber Liquidators Tundra, Germain Racing

Do you enjoy racing at New Hampshire? "We always seem to have a pretty decent setup for the Lumber Liquidators Tundra when we get to New Hampshire. I've always run well at the track and I love New England. Racing at Loudon is like going home. I get to see all my friends racing in the Modifieds. It's a great trip and I hope we can make it special for Lumber Liquidators."

BRIAN SCOTT, No. 16 Albertsons Tundra, Xpress Motorsports

Why is New Hampshire such a special track for you? "It is a fun track. It is flat with long sweeping corners which also allows you to carry speed. It is a very racy track, you can run a variety of grooves. It is a rhythm racetrack. You have two corners which are similar. You get a rhythm in a green flag run at Loudon and you can make up some positions. Track position will be important and pit strategy will be important. New Hampshire is special to me because I got my first truck series start there."

TERRY COOK, No. 25 Cajun Industries-Harris Trucking Tundra, HT Motorsports

Do you enjoy racing at New Hampshire? "New Hampshire is one of the flattest tracks that we go to. I was fortunate enough to get a victory there in 2002, but ever since they added that second groove a few years ago, it's really fun to race on. The trucks usually put on a great show at Loudon, and this year will be no exception. I really feel like the Cajun Industries-Harris Trucking Tundra is making some great strides and we're looking forward to getting to New Hampshire and compete for the win."
