SCOTT LAGASSE JR. ON DARLINGTON

"I'm really excited about going to Darlington; it's a really cool track. Most of the drivers on the circuit say it is their favorite place to go to and I agree. It is totally different than any other place we go and it is really fast. Greg (Biffle) has ran really well at Darlington so I'll be talking with him a lot once we get to the track trying to take advantage of having him as a teammate."

SCOTT LAGASSE JR. ON FLOODING IN NASHVILLE

"I just moved into a place in Nashville about a month ago, so I saw firsthand the devastation that the flooding caused to the city and surrounding areas. It was a very scary situation for many including some of our employees. Our head fabricator had water up to the top of the front door to his house and one of our engineers got caught up in some standing water driving down the road. He and his wife had to escape out the back of their vehicle and wait for help. It is going to take a lot of time and effort to rebuild the city but in the time I've been in Nashville you can tell there is a strong sense of community here. Everyone is working together and we are proud to do our part by running the American Red Cross logo on the car this week. NASCAR fans always rise to the occasion when people are in need and I'm sure that many fans will call, go online or text their support to those in need in Nashville."
