KENNY WALLACE ON RACING AT DARLINGTON:

"I have always liked Darlington from the first time I got there. It's a very unique track, very narrow. It seems to fit my driving style even in the (NASCAR NEXTEL) Cup Series I've got some top 10s in the Southern 500 and a lot of history there. I like going to Darlington because I can get in my pick-up truck, grab an iced tea and a bag of sunflower seeds and I can be there in less than two hours so it puts me in a good mood just going there."

KENNY WALLACE ON COMPETING IN BOTH RACES AT DARLINGTON:

"It's always an advantage to get more time on the track. I've been racing there since 1989 and now that we only race there one time a year, I'll be able to have a lot more practice before the (NASCAR) Busch Series race starts. Darlington really hasn't changed except for the soft walls so always thankful to get a little more track time."
