* When Milwaukee-area attorney Jeffrey Gingold was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 1996, doctors told him the potentially debilitating autoimmune disorder could cause numbness and a long list of other physical symptoms. But they never mentioned it also could affect his thinking and memory. After having to leave his law practice, Gingold wrote a book about cognitive changes in MS patients and now lectures around the country on the disease. For his courage to fight a debilitating disease and his selflessness to help others, Gingold will be recognized as this week's Incredible Hero at Milwaukee.

Driver Scott Lagasse Jr. on the 2009 Season Thus Far:

"It's been an up and down season for the America's Incredible Pizza Company race team so far. It just goes to show that just when you think you have things figured out something will knock you back into reality pretty quick. The goal has always been to run consistent and be realistic when it comes to our performance. We knew right from the start, at Daytona, that our cars are strong and to bring home a top-10 finish every weekend is what we would like to see."

Driver Scott Lagasse Jr. on Milwaukee:

"The Milwaukee Mile has so much history and such a great vibe. A lot of great names have raced and won there. It's truly one of those tracks on the circuit you look forward to competing on."
