ROBBY GORDON -- "This one hits home. Greg Moore was a good friend of mine. This accident is really going to make me think about what I'm doing with my career. We've lost two great guys in the last couple of months, and that's not good. I feel so sad for Greg's dad. Greg was a good kid from a really good family. This is such a tragedy."
MIKE HELD (co-owner) -- "Gosh ... Robby and I just had the time of our lives with Greg down in Australia. We played cards. We went to the beach. We had dinner. That's the loss of a family member, and that hurts."
