Stacy Compton Quotes

On Chicagoland:

"Hopefully Chicagoland has continued to age. When it opened three years ago, it was a one-groove racetrack. Another groove has slowly developed in the last two years, but we really need the middle and upper grooves to open up. The racing there will get better as the track ages and the asphalt starts to wear. Even if there are multiple grooves there, you still have to have a lot of downforce in the turns so you can limit the amount of time you're not on the gas."

On the season:

"We had a great car at Daytona and we dodged all the wrecks. We've moved up four positions in the point standings in the last six races, so we're turning the corner. Hopefully we have all the bad luck behind us for the year and we can continue our march up the standings. Chris Rice and the guys on this Kingsford/Bush's Baked Beans team have been giving me incredible cars all year and we're starting to get some of the results we deserve. The best part is, it's only going to get better."

Crew Chief Chris Rice Quote

On Chicagoland:

"This is another one of the high-banked intermediate tracks that dominate the Busch Series schedule. And like the others, the most critical thing is downforce and balance. You have to make the car free enough where it will turn in the corners, but not so free that a drive has to wrestle with it. You want the car pointed in the right direction as it comes off the corners for a run down the straightaways."
