Bagwell shares thoughts on South Boston.

CORDOVA, AL (June 10, 2003) - Danny Bagwell began the season with high hopes, but he has had his ups and downs. He was fast at Daytona but circumstances did not play in a favorable way for the Sterling Casino Lines/Five Brothers Produce sponsored driver.

In April Bagwell out-dueled the fierce competition in the series first dirt track event at Oglethorpe Speedway Park in Savannah (GA). Charlotte would bring disappointment in the fashion of a mangled race car.

So back to the race shop they went and after regrouping the Four-Tech Racing Team is prepared to take on Big Daddy's South Boston Speedway.

Cathy Rice and Joe Mattioli always put together a great show at this historic venue. The Goody's Dash Series returned to the track three years ago as a support race for NASCAR's Busch Series. The next year they shared the spot light with the Kodak Southeast Series, and Virginia celebrity the Reverand Jerry Falwell. In 2002 the series was center stage and put on a tremendous show for the fans.

Danny Bagwell qualified poorly and then was swept up in an incident early in the event. "We got caught in an accident and it tore a hole in the oil pan," Bagwell relates.

As the series approaches this Saturday's race Bagwell is optimistic that this year will offer a totally different scenario. "I like the track. It is typical of hard short track racing. It is one of those tracks where you root and grind your way to the front and then do all that you can to keep everyone else behind you," he says.

"We have some new parts and we are ready to go."

"I will be disappointed if we are not at the front when the checkered flag waves."
