Stacy Compton Quotes

On Nashville:

"The concrete and the size of the track suits me and our race team. We seem to excel on the mid-range tracks that require a lot of speed. Robert and I were both top-15 cars there two months ago and we've made so many improvements to both cars since then, this time I think we can both be contenders."

On the season:

"This race team has definitely turned the corner. I know sometimes it's easy to lose confidence when you're not getting the kind of finishes you expect, but I look at it in a different way. We've improved every week, and the improvements have been dramatic in the last few weeks. As long as you keep getting better, the results will finally catch up with you."

Crew Chief Jeff Chandler Quote

On Nashville:

"There are some important things you have to watch at Nashville. You have to make sure you have a good balance with the car so you don't burn up the right-front tire. It's not hard to go fast there for a handful of laps, but it's a real challenge to make the car fast for 60-lap run."
