Robert Pressley Quotes

On Pike's Peak: "I've never been in a Busch Series car at Pike's Peak, but I know it's a great racetrack. We've done a lot of work on our flat-track program and we've gotten better in every race on them. I'm confident we're going to be good at Pike's Peak because the guys on this Clorox/Wisk team know the key to the track is getting off the second turn for the quick burst down the backstretch and the ability to accelerate through the middle of the third and fourth turns."

On the season: "We moved up two spots in the Busch Series standings after New Hampshire and now Stacy Compton and I have a nice little competition on who will get into the top 10 first. We're only 192 points out of the top 10 and nobody will be satisfied until we're in the top 10 with a win along with Stacy, our teammate."

Crew Chief Dan Deeringhoff Quote

On Pike's Peak: "This is one of the great race trips of the year in the Busch Series. Pike's Peak is a racy track where you can run two-wide. Pit strategy will be important, but to win there you have to have the best car. There have been a lot of great races there and I'm sure this Saturday's race will be another one."
