Stacy Compton Quotes

On Dover: "Dover is like Bristol on steroids. You feel like you're in the banking most of the day and it really beats up the driver and the car. The straightaways give you a chance to catch your breath. It's important for a driver to feel comfortable in the car, and the best way to do that is to have a good, fast car."

On the season: "We're still within easy reach of the Top-10 (107 points) and we still haven't found our stride yet. I think it bodes well for this team because when we start running off consistent Top-10 finishes, it should put us in good shape in the standings."

Crew Chief Jeff Chandler Quote

On Dover: "It's a real challenge to succeed at Dover. You have to make the car fast and free to roll through the corners. You carry a lot of speed off the corners, so it's important the driver doesn't have to back off the throttle once he gets through the middle of the corner. You want to take all that speed and turn it into a running start for the straightaway."
