Disappointing outing for Team Haas

"We can't dwell on this weekend, we just continue on," said Jerry Haas, Team Haas owner, from Fenton, Mo. "More testing will be the order of business from now to the next race. It seems like we've got the orange truck (Rhoades' truck) baselined but we're still having troubles with the white truck (Greco's truck). Both Matt (Rhoades) and Charlie (Greco) did a good job driving this weekend. We are having trouble with our 60-foot times and must figure that out to be competitive. We have to work in the clutch department and pick both Chevy S-10s up a bit."

The next truck race on the schedule for Team Haas is the Advance Auto Parts Nationals at Heartland Park Topeka (Kan.) the weekend of May 24-27.
