Scott Pruett and Luis Diaz, no.01 CompUSA Lexus-Riley

EXHAUST NOTES: Pruett will be pulling triple-duty this weekend at The Glen much like he did in 2005 when he ran the Rolex, Busch and Cup races. Pruett currently leads the Rolex Series in the Laps Led category with 177, followed by Diaz in second with 149.

SCOTT PRUETT

"It's going to be another busy weekend in Watkins Glen. I'm starting to get used to running all these races here each season. Rolex, Busch or Cup Series -- I always enjoy running at The Glen. Hopefully we have some good weather this time around. Last year we had what looked like a top-10 qualifying run going for the Cup race, until rain washed it all out. But we still managed to finished fourth in Sterling [Marlin's] car. And earlier this year in the sports car race, we endured six hours of wet conditions on and off. It's going to be busy, but these are the weekends you live for. I'm hoping to get the no.01 Daytona Prototype back to victory lane, and back in the point race. The goal for the 40 car is just to keep our nose clean, qualify well, and get the team the points it needs."

LUIS DIAZ

"It's very important for us to get some results with the championship only three races from over. Now is the time we need to get the car to the front, make the right calls, and overtake people to get up front. There is no room left for error. We have to get going this weekend or the championship is lost."
