PRE-EVENT QUOTES...

"I'd like to change the outcome of last year's U.S. Nationals when we lost in the final. We can't go back in time, but we could do the next best thing and win this year."

"I just barely got there in time for the race last year because of Hurricane Katrina, and we ended up doing really well. It'd be nice to get there (the final) again this year, not under those circumstances, but to still do well and enjoy it a little more."

"We've been doing a lot of testing, and we've been learning a lot about these Stratus'."

"I know we've got the power, we've got the team, and we have the faces behind the scenes. We just have to get it all to gel together. It starts with qualifying, and we struggled a little bit in Memphis, but we'll get that turned around and get a stronger starting spot in the field."

"We are going to hope for the best, and do the best we can. Everyone is going to be fighting to get one of those 16 starting spots, and then it's going to be a fight to go rounds and get the win."
