SCOTT LAGASSE JR. ON NASHVILLE SUPERSPEEDWAY
"I really enjoy running at Nashville and have been very successful in both the Nationwide Series and the ARCA Series there. With our team being based in Nashville this is a real special race for everyone at Baker Curb Racing. All the crew will have their friends and family at the track, so we want to run up front. We also have Jason Aldean's Wide Open album cover on the hood, so hopefully we'll turn some Aldean fans into Scott Lagasse Jr. fans with a strong showing Saturday. Nationwide Insurance has put some extra money on the line with their "Dash 4 Cash" program, which will make things more interesting at the end of the race!"

JEFF WHITE ON NASHVILLE SUPERSPEEDWAY
"Goodyear has changed the tire we are using at Nashville and it will be interesting to see how that comes in to play this weekend. The data we received is showing that on a green race track the right side is showing some significant wear. We'll have to keep our eyes on that during practice. As far as the race goes, the trucks will have been on the track and laid some rubber down and that should help. Unlike at most tracks, I think once there is some rubber on the track and the tire begins to wear a little you'll see faster lap times than at the beginning of a run."
