Jon Wood Quotes

On Dover: "The thing you learn quick at Dover is trouble happens fast and there's no little wrecks. We learned that the hard way last June when we were involved in somebody else's problem. It's a great track if you stay out of trouble. I have a couple Top-10 finishes there in the Truck Series, so it's a good track. The tricky parts of the speedway are the exits of Turns 2 and 4. It's so tight there and if somebody spins, it's going to collect a bunch of cars. The best way to avoid that is to be in front of the trouble."

On the season: "We've built a strong foundation for the rest of the season - and the future. It's been a big jump from the trucks to the Busch Series, but we've learned together. We're going to tracks for the second time and we have a much better idea of what works and what doesn't. I believe you'll see us finishing real strong in the final seven races."

Crew Chief Jay Guy Quote

On Dover: "When you race at Dover, you approach it like a giant Bristol. The concrete is really hard on the brakes, hard on the car and hard on the driver. The car has to be durable, yet flexible enough to roll easily through the corners. The most overlooked parts on the car at Dover are the brakes. You have to have a good braking system - one that helps you slow down at the end of the straightaways but not so much that it kills your momentum."
