Timothy Peters on Milwaukee: "Milwaukee is one of the few race tracks I have never driven on before. To be honest with you I know nothing about the track heading into this weekend except what Bobby (Hamilton Sr.) has told me. It's a flat track and hard to drive. I have been told it's similar to Loudon, but then again I have not raced at Loudon either. Bobby was telling me it was created out of an old horse track and that makes it unique and a place of its own. I know gaining experience will be an important part of this weekend. I get to run the rookie practice this weekend because I have never seen the place so I hope a little extra seat time will be just what I need for a good finish."

Hard Hit at Michigan: "Last week's wreck at Michigan was probably the hardest hit I have ever taken. I was watching the replay and could not believe the rear tires came off the ground. I woke up Sunday morning and was bruised pretty bad in several areas. I know my seat belts worked because I did not break anything, but I am pretty sure they are what caused my bruises. I will take bruises any day over a broken bone. NASCAR called me Monday and told me they had looked over my truck and the wreck and determined something broke on my truck because of oil they found. I am just glad to know that I did not just lose it."

Filling In For The Boss: "Bobby Sr. does a radio show every week with Liz Allison on 104.5 The ZONE in Nashville. Since he has been undergoing treatments Bobby Jr. and I have been filling in for him. It has been a lot of fun, a big learning experience for me. At first it is kind of intimidating when you get on the air and fans call in asking your opinion on NASCAR's latest decision. I didn't really step out on a limb too far with my answers because I don't want to ruffle any feathers, but I do a pretty good job of letting them know how I feel. A big part of helping Bobby beat this disease is pitching in where I can and I am just glad to have the opportunity to fill in for the boss."
