ERIN CROCKER QUOTES:

CROCKER ON MANSFIELD:

"We have made a ton of progress. The team is showing it and the results are showing in the race. We went to Charlotte with one of the best trucks out there and qualified very well. There were things I could have done better and there are things in the pits we need to work on. But from Daytona to Charlotte it is like a night and day difference. Patrick Donahue, Scott McDougal, and Ronnie Hornaday have done a great job putting things together. The team has really come together and it is something I say every week, but you can see it is in the results. I know going into Mansfield I will have a really good truck. I don't know what to expect going there, because I have never been there or seen the track and I don't have a lot of short track experience. We will go off how Martinsville went. Try to qualify well and stay out trouble and we should be good."

DONAHUE ON TEAM PROGRESS:

"The team morale has turned around 180 degrees from the St. Louis to now. The guys in the shop and the guys at the track have been working extremely hard. You could not ask for more dedicated guys than what we have on the Cheerios/Betty Crocker team. We definitely have things we need to work on as a team and we need to start having better restarts. We have been improving on these things every week. Once we get them all worked out we will have a very solid team. Scott McDougal and Ronnie Hornaday have done a tremendous job with the trucks and the team."

"We are bringing the same truck we took to St. Louis this weekend. We fixed some problems we found on the truck in St. Louis so I think we should have a very good truck. I think we should be able to qualify in the top half of the field and run competitively. We just want to go and be competitive this weekend."
