Antron Brown on Gainesville

"I'm excited to get back to Gainesville. It's always an exciting track for me. It's always a fast race too. It's where my career started way back in 1998 and in my whole career, I've never won there. It would be a nice breakout race for our DSR Matco Tools team in 2010. We just want to be consistent and take things one round at a time and run like we know we can."

Brian Corradi (crew chief) on Gainesville

"It's been a busy few weeks for our Matco Tools team, so we ready to get back to the race track and get to racing. And, what better place to do that than Gainesville. It's a historic race and a track we know we can run well at and that's our goal. We want to get back on track and perform like we know we can and like we did last season."

In the first round of eliminations, Brown was matched up against Troy Buff. Brown's car went out of control and the 24-time NHRA winner was uninjured in the crash. Brown has a mark of 1-2 this season.
