Quotes from Mike McLaughlin, Driver of The Goulds Pumps Chevrolet:

"Everyone on the Goulds Pumps Team has been working hard to get this car ready for Michigan. We have been pretty consistent at Michigan the last few years, but we haven't been able to get up right up there with the lead pack, hopefully we can do that this year. We know we have the horsepower for Michigan, with Ron Hutter building the engines and Charlie Brunnhoelzl always hangs a great body on our cars. If we can get that little extra edge with the chassis this year, we should be a contender. I know we will have lots of Goulds Pumps customers in the stands this weekend, and I want to make them all happy with a solid finish."

PIT NOTES

The Goulds Professional Dealers Association members provide clean safe water to farmers via well drilling, pump sizing, repair, product sales and water treatment.

- Mike McLaughlin has started 141 consecutive Busch Grand National races, the second longest active streak. Phil Parsons has started 144 straight races.

- During the off week, Mike McLaughlin made a surprise visit to Waterloo, NY to see his parents. While in Waterloo, Mike spent time restoring his first ever racecar. Just last season, Mike located the car rusting away in an old field near his hometown.
