"Wrecking the No. 22 (Caterpillar) Pontiac yesterday left me a little bruised and sore," said Burton. "I need to take the opportunity today to get in shape for tomorrow's race. The big picture is we're going to sacrifice today's Busch race instead of risking being hurt for several races down the road. Polaris is a great sponsor. I feel bad for them, but they're riding on our Winston Cup car on Sunday, so we'll do a good job for them tomorrow."

Burton will spend the day getting assistance from the Wake Forest Medical Facility. He has bruises and a sore left foot that they'll be attending to.
