The thoughts of Flagship RV/exp4additives.com Pontiac driver Jimmy Henderson heading into Talladega:

'We're really looking forward to this weekend. We've put the incident at Nashville behind us, and we have high hopes of putting the Flagship RV, exp4additives.com Pontiac Grand Prix into Victory Lane Saturday."

"I appreciate the opportunity that C.E. and Tammy have given me, and I hope that this is the start of a long last relationship."

On competing in his first restrictor plate race of his career:

"I'm really looking forward to racing in the draft this weekend. We tested here a few weeks ago. We were down on horsepower, so we have a new engine for this race, I'm excited. This is truly a mental race, I plan to be on top of my game all day with the help of my spotter."

The goals for the weekend:

"The goal is pretty simple. I have a feeling this is going to be a very competitive race, and we have to qualify and race upfront all day. I want to try and stay out of the "eye of the storm" and give TC Motorsports a finish they deserve."

"I would be happy with a top ten finish, but if we can walk away with a win, I don't know what I'll do. It would mean so much to me, my family, my team, and our sponsors to beat the odds and drive into victory lane."

His plans for the 2005 racing season:

"I'm really hoping to be racing. I hope that we can seal a deal with TC Motorsports and run a majority of the events in 2005. I know it takes sponsorship to make that happen, and believe me we are looking."

"We're not going to be returning to the American Speed Association next year, but we do plan to compete in the NASCAR Busch Series with Henderson Motorsports, along with any deals that may arise in ARCA."
