Robert Pressley Quotes

On Nashville:

"Most of my experience in Nashville came at the short track at the fairgrounds, but I adapted to the new superspeedway really well when we were there two months ago. It's a fast track, and the concrete gives us a lot of grip. You've got to make sure your car travels smoothly through the corners because the concrete can make it bounce around. If you have traction coming off the second and fourth turns, you can set up a good run down the straightaways."

On the season:

"With Dan Deeringhoff (crew chief) and Steve Plattenberger (team coordinator/shock specialist) and Jeff (Chandler, Stacy Compton's crew chief) all three working together, we've been able to make huge gains in the last couple weeks. They gave me a car that reacted exactly the way it was supposed to react every time we made a change. If we keep that up, I think you'll see we've turned the corner with this team."

Crew Chief Dan Deeringhoff Quote

On Nashville:

"I think the things we learned at Dover will help us with our cars at Nashville. We've made the cars a lot easier to drive and we're getting plenty of power from the Robert Yates engines. I think we're as prepared for Saturday's race as we've been in a long time."
