PRE-EVENT QUOTES...

"We're definitely in the hunt to advance to the semifinals or final round this time in Las Vegas. We should've advanced through the first round in Richmond, we definitely had a good car. We'll have a top half car this weekend, Mark's doing a great job with the setups and Roy is constantly working to find more horsepower. Tim Freeman is going to join us for the Las Vegas event. He's been around pro stock for year and he'll most definitely be another asset to our team."

"With two events left, we're focused on finishing the season in the Top-10 in points. We're going to have to go rounds and work to get to the semifinals or finals each race. We've got to keep pace with V. Gaines and Larry Morgan, the other two Dodges in the Top-10 hunt. We've got the equipment and resources to advance at Las Vegas and Pomona. It doesn't matter if it comes in the form of two wins or two runner-up finishes, we're focused on gaining enough points to lock ourselves into the Top-10."
