Stacy Compton Quotes

On Pike's Peak: "It's no secret Pike's Peak has been a good speedway for ST Motorsports. We have two top-10 finishes there in the last two years, and Phil Parsons finished third there one year in the Kingsford/Bush's Baked Beans car. It's a great racetrack because it has a lot of room to race, especially coming through the third and fourth turns and along the main straightaway. What I like most about the track is it's not a follow-the-leader track like we see too many times on the Busch Series schedule. It's a racers' track, so it's one of our favorite trips of the year."

On the season: "Our eighth-place finish at New Hampshire last week was an important step for our race team because it could be the start of the mid-summer run that we've all expected. We're 15th in points, but only 162 points out of the top 10. Our goal is to finish in the top 10 and to win a race, so we've still got some work to do."

Crew Chief Chris Carrier Quote

On Pike's Peak: "It's fun going to a track where the team already has a great record. We've got some good notes and all we have to do is fine-tune the car a little bit for Stacy to make it even better. We know what Stacy likes and what our Fords need, so it's getting easier to make decisions on pit road concerning strategy and track position."
