"I always look forward to getting together with the great Delaware Valley race fans, and I think everyone is going to have a great time Sunday in Atlantic City. We will be glad to have some honorary pit crew members from the Stock Car Challenge help our team at Pocono, but I am pretty confident my team of drivers will be tough to beat this weekend."
