Quotes

Scott Goodyear---The Track---"Las Vegas Motor Speedway is a great track for racing and great for passing because it's so wide."

Scott Goodyear---The Championship---"I think our strategy is clear and the game plan is easy because the pressure has shifted and we need to just go out there and win."

Andy Brown, Chief Engineer---"2nd place is not good enough. We are back to the "Win or put it in the trash bin" mentality. Goodyear Tire is pulling out all the stops for this race and we're going to capitalize on that fact."
