(Daytona Beach, Fla.) -- While most people are celebrating Valentine's Day this week #10 Valvoline Pontiac driver Johnny Benson and his Crew Chief James Ince are busy preparing for Thursday's qualifying races for Sunday's Daytona 500. But that doesn't mean both married men are going to ignore their wives on Wednesday.

James Ince On Valentine's Day Plans:

"What am I going to do for my sweetheart on Valentine's Day this week? I'm going to give it a couple of fresh quarts of Valvoline a coat of wax and get it ready for Thursday. You're talking about the race car right? That's my sweetheart this week.

"Actually, Denise and I are going to try to get out of the track Wednesday and go to the restaurant we went to when we first started dating two years ago. I'll probably buy her flowers also and that's about it. Well, maybe if she is lucky I will take her to Volusia County Speedway and we can watch the late model cars race."

Johnny Benson On Valentine's Day Plans:

"Well, we are going to do a Valvoline media dinner Wednesday night so I'll probably take Debbie to the restaurant with us. I'm sure that won't be the most romantic dinner we have ever had but finding time to do something together during Speedweeks is pretty tough. We have been married a lot longer than James so we might not be quite as romantic. But, if we get done early, maybe I'll take her to Volusia County Speedway also."
